Started in Georgia, ended in Maine. 5 times.
Started in Maine, ended in Georgia. 1 time.
Have hiked 4000 "other" AT miles (big sections)
I cannot tell a lie. Those GA-ME hikes and the ME-GA hike were by no means "pure" Lotsa blue-blazing, bushwhacking and road walking in there. I'll never have a patch or certificate. Im out of the closet. I'm a BI-BLAZER!

LW, do you know White Trash? If so tell him Puck is stocking up on Natural Light and Little Debbies for this spring.

Seven hikes of entire Appalachian Trail, including six thru-hikes (1997-2002). All trips were Northbound, tho I've hiked much of the Trail in a southbound direction. Have always considered myself a white-blaze ultra-purist, (i.e., I stick to the established Trail) tho I've no problems at all with those who wish to hike a different way.

Hiked 1800 miles of the Appalachian Trail in 1999, and the entire length in 2001. Somehow managed to walk by all the white blazes between the two trips, but probably couldn't pay enough attention to do so in one go. I also haven't gotten around to sending that little form back to the ATC.

Live in Doraville, GA (northeast suburb of Atlanta)

I've been absent from the A.T. internet scene for quite a long while and just signed on to the forum tonight. Recognize a few names but not too many at this point.
GA-PA 1993
PA-ME 1997
GA-ME 1998

Lots of other fun stuff too. Life and God have been good with many great things in the last few years. Joy in abundance! I got married in 2001, now have a 3 month old son and just finished building my own home with my own hands! Praise God!!

Youngblood, I see you live in Doraville. I just moved from Roswell to Woodstock, GA and still work in Roswell. We're neighbors!

As of 9/10/03, I have walked the ENTIRE Appalachian Trail (i.e., white blazes) twelve times:
1 solo thru-hike in 1973 (66.5 days - a record at that time)
6 group thru-hikes in 1975, 1977, 1980, 1990, 1995, 1995, 2000
(100% completion rate in 5 of the 6 expeditions)
5 section hikes done between (and during) the thru-hikes (1972-present)

I will finish my 13th hike (section) during the first weekend in April 2005 and my 14th hike (2005 Circle Expedition) on Labor Day weekend 2005.

Thru-hiked northbound with my Wife, Jitterbug for our honeymoon in 2002. We left on Mar 3 and finished on Aug 18th.

Now residing in Minneapolis until we can break away for another long distance hike.

I hiked the AT GA-ME in 1988 and 1992 - not as a purist either time. Not my style. Also hiked the CDT in 1999 and the PCT in 2000 and some other shorter trails in between.

ga - me '76; makes me feel old; and i've been returning to favorite sections, checking out 'new' trail and lots of side trails, off trail bushwacking and other unconnected wild places in the appalachians ever since. still have to complete arden valley to bear mtn - my uncle wouldn't return to where he picked me up - wanted to show me bear mtn and west point...and carter dome to gorham - big storm. i'm purely into getting back out there whenever possible - even relocated to east tennessee 5 years ago to facilitate that - looking forward to yet another offtrail climb to the heights of gsmnp next weekend.

I got the 'unofficial' ga-me 2000 miler patch (as opposed t the official me-ga one) after the hike from a guy somewhere near neel's gap. It made sense to get it since that's the way i walked. It's still on my big kelty serac. I heard that the atc stopped him from producing these patches a short time later. Anybody else have one or hear any more about them?

Yea.....Done that, been there. Whow, what a star-studded cast. Let's make an AT Vet's Movie...ha. Naw, I've been blessed by the creator with the will and physical strength to walk The Trail NOBO in 1996. Started May 21st, finished on Katahdin,October 25th. I got home and thought about The Trail constantly, and in 2000, I got up there again with the 'Mellinium Hajj' in mind but slipped and hurt a knee pretty bad, but got to Damascus. Then in 2001, I got up again in Damascus with a friend and did VA to HF, my wife's mother got sick, had to go home again. So I've got the 'Harper's Blues' for now.....Hope to get up again soon, looking at Spring '05, to finish the second walk and complete the Millineum Hajj. Then it's off to the Rockies in '06 -'07. I would like to maybe reach some kind of closure on this 'hiking thing' (I'm 56 now) by going up to BC and Alaska before I get too old and doing some 'real wilderness' hikin'. See yas Up The Trail....KZ@
