2022 is just around the corner. For those planning a long distance journey, it is almost time to lace up your hiking shoes! Covid still lingers, so be mindful:

Trail Name
Direction/Start Location (if other than either terminus)
Estimated Start Date
Approach Trail - yes or no
any additional info that you want the world to know

I'll compile all the data into a spreadsheet which will be available for viewing in the articles section (https://whiteblaze.net/forum/content.php/28-whiteblaze-thru-hikers).

ATC also has a registration page. Check it out here (https://atcamp.org/). Hopefully you will be able to get a 'hang tag' earlier than when 2021 hikers were able to.

Lots of bear activity on the trail in recent years. Take appropriate, responsible actions with your food bag.

Finalize those gear lists and Good Luck and Have Fun!

See you on the trail,
mt squid
