Better design

I believe I have designed this book to be more organized to better help the hiker. I added hundreds of more mileage locations/references points, more than any other single Appalachian Trail guidebook. I also added more quick reference icons. I felt that adding more quick reference icons was a better way to go. This helps the hikers to look quickly at the icons rather then having to read the whole description write-up.
