Sooo, my parents aren't very comfortable with the idea of me thru hiking by myself. Big whoop. Anyways, I need a partner for next year. I'll be leaving late Feb/early Match and am hoping to be done at the latest early August. I'm taking spring semester off from school, but I need to be back for the fall semester. I don't mind whether the hiker is a guy or a girl. Honestly, I'd probably like hiking with a guy better (as would my parents). I'm hoping to get a partner early, so that we could do some weekend hikes, etc. (maybe even section hike the AT some this summer) for preparation and to see how well we get along and such. Let me know if you're interested! PM me or just reply here. Happy hiking, everyone.
