Please share in your opinion what constitutes an official thru hike. Some have told me that as long as you complete the trail in one yr its a thru hike. Others have said that it has to be continuous except for resupply stops and a few days along the way. Others have said if your injured and need to be away and then come back its still a thru hike.
One guy even suggested I go down and hike the AT state of Georgia on long weekends after January 1st to get that state finished before starting NOBO and as long as its within 2011 its still a thru hike.
So in other words alot of different ideas on what an official thru hike truly is.
Please share your thoughts and I thank you.
