I am looking to find a partner or partners for a thru hike in late march or early april starting at Springer and heading north. I am planning on starting off with low milage days and working into higher milage days and am not in a rush as I want to enjoy the fall colors in New England. I am not looking to share equipment as I want to be free to take a day off when ever I feel but would love to start off with someone and if we hike the same speed then who knows maybe we would finish together. I have hiked many trails in western canada but have never hiked out east and would enjoy learning from a local. I am a single male age 45 with many hikes under my belt and in fair shape.
