I've started a new series on my hiking blog on southbound vs northbound AT. Since I'm about to finish my SOBO this spring, I thought it would be good to discuss the differences I learned with gear issues, trail, town, solo vs group, etc.
The first blog is up, discussing the "start" hike of a NOBO vs SOBO - the Approach and planning the first day hike from either Katahdin or Springer. This is good also for those in the planning stages of hiking the trail.
If you want to receive regular updates when a new blog is posted, there is a "subscribe" feature on the blog site. Hope this is helpful.
