Hey- So I'm a solo female thru hiker (age 19), and I was just wondering if any other females want to start the trail together. (I don't care what your age is) Just for the first couple weeks, because I think I'm really a solo hiker at heart, but I also think I could use some moral support for the first week or two. (The first week is the hardest, after all) And we don't have to hike side by side, just meet up at breaks and at night. I'm staying at The Hiker Hostel on February 22, and heading to Springer on the 23rd. So, anyone want to join me?
(And I figured I'd get a couple days head start on the March 1st crowd, so as not to start with too many people)
