Do any non-US thru-hikers have any comments on getting a visa to hike the trail?
As a UK resident, I can stay for a month or so but I'm not going to get from Maine to Georgia in that time without serious chemical assistance.
Anyway, the way I understand it is to get a longer term tourist visa you must submit your travel plans in advance, and at an interview at the US embassy show you have sufficient funds to complete your trip. I'm hoping that (excluding the equipmnt I start with and my return air fare) I can do the hike on 3000 dollars.
Has anyone been through this, and can you comment if so?
