    We are seeking thru-hikers (or those taking on at least one month of the Appalachian Trail) to participate in a study during the 2014 hiking season. We are looking at the benefits of long-distance hiking. Those who participate in the study will be entered into a drawing worth $500 or more in cash or gift cards. The only thing you need to be able to participate is an Internet connection (smart phones are acceptable). Participation in research is voluntary, and with the exception of asking that those passing though Harper’s Ferry walk into town to complete some online questions, will not affect your hike. In fact, we encourage you to Hike Your Own Hike. If you are interested in helping us better understand the benefits of long-distance hiking, please email Dr. Joye (joye.research@gmail.com).

    We have added another feature currently only available for Donating Members.

    Donating Members can now add threads to their ignore list. They will be able to accumulate up to 100 threads on their ignore listing. This amount can me raised later if we feel there is a need to. By doing this the thread will not show up anymore for you except when doing search results.

    Hello everyone!

    Please forgive/advise me if this is not the appropriate place to post this. I registered just today and I want to alert the AT community about a lost dog. I found out about this website via Reddit, where I have also posted the same message (http://www.reddit.com/r/AppalachianT...is_dog_on_the/).
