I'm curious if there is anyone out there who dreamed of a thru hike for years, then after finally beginning discovered they were satisfied with sectional hiking, perhaps multi-week trips?
Or if after finally having the opportunity to thru hike decided to cut it short...and if so...why?
I read many accounts of those who completed a thru hike...a certain amount of pride and accomplishment must come with that....but for those who started out to to thru hike, then something changed.....
...what's your story?
(I am three years out from attempting a thru hike...have dreamed of it for years...just wanting to learn from those who have gone before me...)
