***Please do the survey even if you didn’t complete the A.T.—we can learn from everyone’s experience.***


I’m a former thru-hiker (trail name “Wisp”, GA – ME, 2011) working on a research study about the psychology of A.T. thru-hiking.

To take the survey, please go to this link: http://listenagain.stir.ac.uk/media/2014/atthruhike/ (http://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Flistenagain.stir.ac.uk%2Fmedi a%2F2014%2Fatthruhike%2F&h=nAQGDHXVR&enc=AZPQR-DBA29PHD5SHN2HobwU8NVMbK_y68VYtKqfM6XfM0xfBWP53R7s bWMIslIeKN55SNvIOzMDqqDI-ublixoSq4ecFE7s1nWgaL8aEfuzVOaI2fm1a_9KCoDI5wjivDq KWoeYDs-I7KoWQKa2rMJK&s=1)

Anyone (age ≥ 18) who has tried to thru-hike the A.T. for the first time in 2004 – 2014—including those who didn't complete the thru-hike AND those who did—is asked to take the survey.

-It takes about 25 minutes.
-Those who take the survey will be able to receive a summary of the study’s results.
-This may help others with their A.T. thru-hikes.
-This study is part of my Sport Psychology Ph.d program.
-This study was approved by my university (contact info below).

Thank you!

I can't get it to work and I am using an actual computer. SORRY.

Red Dog--
Ach!
It sounds as tho your computer won't allow you to access the link.
I've asked the I.T. department what to recommend.
If you're willing to try, perhaps--as annoying as this is--try manually typing the website address in, and / or copy and paste the website address, rather than clicking the link.
Tho I realize it's wishful thinking to think that by entering the link here again, it will magically work for you this time, here's the link again: http://listenagain.stir.ac.uk/media/2014/atthruhike/
If the above does not work, would you let me know?
Regardless, thank you for giving me the chance to remedy this rather than giving up and simply not taking the survey.

Hello, Hike Hunter--
Any luck yet in trying to get the survey to work? I'm inserting the link again below.
http://listenagain.stir.ac.uk/media/2014/atthruhike/
If clicking doesn't work, you can try typing the link character-by-character into your web browser, or copy and paste it.
And if you're using a phone or tablet, please try this link:
http://www.survey.bris.ac.uk/stirlin...gphonestablets
I do hope one of these options works!
Regardless, thank you for trying to help by taking the survey!
