My name is James. I just joined the site a few days ago and thought I should introduce myself. I'm from North Carolina and I love to hike. I've been doing it for as long as I can remember and it never gets old! I've been thinking about thru hiking the AT next year in 2016 and thought that this site would be a good way to maybe meet some people and just prepare for the trail. I've never done a thru hike before,especially not like this, but I'm up for the challenge!

Don't worry about meeting other hikers.Next year there will again be record crowds of hikers leaving Springer Mtn. every day during the spring.Expect full shelters and a lack of tent space near some shelters too.Some hikers just stop and take a dump anywhere and make no effort to cover it either.I hope you have a few grand saved up for the parade too. :eek:
