What is one thing you wish you had known or done differently on your thru-hike? Any regrets? Not taking enough pictures, writing memories, etc?

Had a great time, but my hiking partner remembers it differently. I wish I had been more understanding of her needs.

Pictures many times won't/can't capture what you see. I would of liked in retrospect write a journal. I would of also gone slower and "smell the roses" more and take in more of the views and cultural/historical sites. I would of focused more on the journey and not the destination. The miles would of come either way.

One of many subjects covered on Clarity's site. Good spot to start getting prepped...
