    Amanda Jones, of Shrewsbury, Pa., sets up a ground cloth Friday where she intends to spend the week camping on the Colby College campus in Waterville during the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Conference. "I'd rather be outside than inside, even if it's raining, but it's not going to," Jones said. She is one of the estimated 150 tenters for the week at the conference, which offers participants excursions from the coast on Penobscot Bay to the western Maine mountains.
