Well Jack, I know you said that you would have decided by Valentine's day if you would be thru hiking this year or not. So the question is, are you going to?

I expect to be down South this spring, and I expect to do a good bit of hiking between Georgia and Damascus.

I don't know if my knee is up to another full go-round, nor, to be honest, do I know if that's what I really want to do. I had a great time the last few years doing the sections I wanted, skipping the ones I wanted, taking some crazy blue-blazes and side trips, etc. While doing a no-nonsense "Don't Skip a Yard!" thru-hike is great time, so is doing the bits you want, and ONLY the bits you want. Plus, I can think of all sorts of better ways to spend the first half of July rather than to be hiking in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

This might be the summer I actually get to see more than five Red Sox games.

Soi the answer to your question is this :

I haven't the faintest idea what I'm gonna be doing this year, tho I hope to meet many of you on the Trail this spring, either down south, or later on, up this way.
