I thought this, along w/mweinstone's thread would give us all a good visual of the #'s of people we'll be starting with within any given 2 week period. This poll is for ALL hikers, thru's and section hikers. If I didn't get a range that works for you...sorry...I really tried to think through the most common scenarios. Oh...I made it so you can click on the # in your category and see who else is starting close to you.

I should "start my hike" in Jan or Feb on the Alabama Pinhoti Trail, but I voted for the second half of March because that's when I plan expect to go to Springer. Anyone else want to do a warm-up hike on the Pinhoti? I've done it in '04 and '06 and I highly recommend it.

I'll be starting on March 4th, heading nobo. I'm not sure yet if I'll be doing the approach trail.

I originally was going to start on St. Paddy's Day but have moved the timline up a week - will be spending the night of March 11th up on Springer and head out the morning of the 12th.

Gear is almost together, going through it for the umpteenth time, setting up a couple of mail drops, testing out the stove, seam-sealed the tent, enduring the last couple of weeks at work, have setup reservations at the Hiker Hostel, - man, won't THE DAY ever get here!!

Gettin' AnTsy!!!

Is this for "official" start dates, or for the dates on which, based on past performance, one's family would predict said hiker will actually get going? :D

I'll be heading down there the weekand of March 23 and start at springer on or about the 25. I am going to do a searies of hikes in MD area to get in shape a little bit better shape. Right now I sort of gained some weight over the hollidays. I kno I will loose alot on the trail so I should be allright.

Was going to start on April Fool's Day, but really can't stand to wait another 2 weeks, so decided to start March 17th. Will extra time to play around with in case I want to continue over Ktaadn and take the IAT to Quebec. CAN'T WAIT!
