Hey Everyone! I was wondering if anyone could help me out. My name is Christie, I'm 22 and a student in Michigan. I'm writing a research paper and it's pretty much about how you should prepare yourself for the AT. I have been on a few day hikes but nothing that can compare to the AT. I really am interested in getting more intense about my hiking and backpacking and I would love to gain any first hand knowledge I could. I know everyone is busy with life but I would so much appreciate a little of your time. Anyone who would be up for an interview via email, im, tele or ANYTHING. I would really love it! Feel free to e mail me whenever, my AIM name is tayc927 hopefully some of you can help me out!!! Thanks so much!!!
