  1. In 1997 the Pacific Crest Trail Conference published a list of through hikers in their handbook. A number of finishers, with completion years, were listed. Byron and Margaret Hutchins are among those that did not have a completion year. I am researching this and would appreciate a comment if I am on the right track. Thanks, “The Teutonic Knight”, PCT ’97.
