Is August too late to start?
I'm planning on thru-hiking southbound beginning in August (either the 2nd, the 10th, or the 15th). The 15th works best with my work schedule, but I'm afraid it will get be too cold to be hiking PA in November and Virginia in December, especially at high elevations. I found online that at least one person has started August 1st and made it the whole way http://www.vhl.org/hike/ so I know its possible to start in August and finish in January. I have a +15 sleeping bag and a three season tent, and I'll bring plenty of warm clothing. Has anyone else hiked starting this late? Any advice for how to do it?
