AMC = Appalachian Money Collectors? (first
coined by "Albee" in the 80's)
I used to do lots of volunteer stuff with the AMC,
although lately they have some strange political agenda that seems to have
alienated myself and many of my hiking/climbing/paddling/biking buddies.
Nonetheless, they offer many excellent programs, and a good method for
meeting and hooking up with outdoor-oriented folks.
(... but much better to join the RMC (Randolph Mtn.
Club); for $20 a year you won't get discounts on anything, but you will
help support the best all-volunteer outdoor organization in the state.
Their backcountry facilities are beautiful timberline cabins, less than
$10 a night, always self-service, first-come first-served, and they won't
send you away in a blizzard at dark like the AMC Huts will...)
