I have hikes on the AT the past two years and have covered from Harpers Ferry to Great Barrington Mass. I am looking for a partner for the summer of 2007. I teach and can leave for four to six weeks after June 20, 2007. I do not necessairly want someone to hike step for step. Just someone to meet up with for meals and overnight camping. A partner for safety sake. I am a 65 year YOUNG man and would like to hike with a person of either gender or age it makes no difference. Just someone reliable.

I teach too, and have also been hiking the AT for the past two summers. I've gotten as far as Bland Va. Hoping to do Bland to Harper's Ferry if I hike this summer. Keep in touch.

I have no preference as to NOBO or SOBO it depends on the partner I hook up with as long as I do not re hike any part of the trail from harpers to great barrington:banana

I live in MA, and would never turn down an opportunity to hike. Should you decide to head North from MA, and still need a partner, toss me a PM.

Why is everyone looking for a reliable hiking partner. Has anyone ever posted looking for an unreliable hiking partner?

(it depends on how you define reliable.)
