I'm looking for a partner to start my thru-hike with. Hopefully someone who can finish this thing with me, but starting together is nice either way. I have hiked parts of the AT and have been wanting to do a thru-hike for several years now. I graduate from grad-school in may 2012 and would like to start at Katahdin mid to late may. Looking forward to any advice, and meeting some friendly people.
