I sure hope ya'll aren't getting annoyed at these questions. I really value your opinions.
Here's my idea. My wife and I want to hike alot of the AT this year, at least till July. I have a nice RV. I don't care to spend alot of money on hostels or hotels. So I was thinking:
Hike 2-3 days, then turn around and hike back. Move the RV (after spending a night there). Hike 2-3 days and back again. If I do it correctly after I move the RV, I can hike south for 2-3 days - reverse course (that would put me at my starting point). Then hike North - reverse again. This way I'm only moving the RV every 6-8 days.
I know I won't be able to do the whole trail; but I am retired and being in a hurry doesn't interest me again. I am finding that when you reverse course, the trail looks completely different - must be gettin old.
This would eliminate the problem of having to get back to my car or RV after hiking for longer periods.
Does it sound logical, or am I off my nut? Has anyone tried something similar before?
Sorry for the long rant and dumb q's.
