    Default 2015 atko

    Don't know if I'm blind or just looking in all the wrong places but am trying to find out when the ATKO for 2015 is planning to be held. Planning the total package experience - ATKO, approach trail, all 650 steps, the waterfall and oh, the AT! Would just like to know the dates so I can plan. Can any one tell me where to find this elusive info??

    I don't see any information on the website regarding the 2015 kick off. It would be worth trying to contact the people who run the kick off to see if they have selected a date yet. Contact info at this link: http://www.atko.info/Contact_Us.html
    Colorado Trail - July 28 to August 27, 2014
    AT Rockfish Gap, VA to Boiling Springs, PA - April 15 to 28, 2014
    John Muir Trail - August 26 to September 14, 2013

    Actually DY it is held the first part of March (this year it is the 7th, 8th & 9th) at the at Amicalola Falls State Park Lodge. They have speakers on things AT and help with pack shake-downs for us newbies that want to think we need to take the kitchen sink because of "what ifs". Trailfest looks to be the week after. That looks like fun too!

    Woot, woot!! Found out the ATKO for 2015 is the first full weekend of March, which is the 6th, 7th and 8th. Guess who will be looking at hitting the trail on the 9th :-)
