I watched a great series of videos on youtube produced by entitypub. His trail name is August and he is a former thru-hiker that put together a great preparation series of videos. He says he will start in March and plans to produce an AT documentary with his 2012 thru-hike footage. I really enjoyed it and I didnt see and info on here posted by August so I just wanted to make sure others were aware of this. Some really good info and seems like a genuine person. Very enjoyable to watch.
