"America's Wild Spaces: The Appalachian Trail" premiered on National Geographic Television at 8 p.m. on Nov. 10, 2009. The 'Mid-Atlantic Lowlands' segment opened with a certain avid local hiker and longtime AT maintainer striding purposefully across the Bear Mountain Bridge, wearing a yellow New York New Jersey Trail Conference Volunteer T-shirt, toting an orange backpack, and swinging trekking poles. He stopped and gazed northward up the Hudson, commenting on the beauty of the river. Next he strode even more purposefully toward a blowdown blocking the Trail on Stormville Mountain, then vigorously sawed through it, and triumphantly tossed it off the Trail."--Ralph Ferrusi writing in the Poughkeepsie Journal, Jan. 21, 2010
