I would like to take a 5-7 day hike on the AT anytime from May-Sept. I would try to do 10-12 miles a day. I am not in great hiking condition so I will be sucking alot of wind but I am very steady in my pace. I would like to leave from the Bear Mtn bridge or Rte 22 in NY. If you think you'd like to join me, please respond.

I will be doing several 3-4 day hikes through NY, CT and MA. I am going from Hoyt Rd at the NY/CT border to Falls Village, CT. I am starting on Sunday (June 10th) and ending at my vehicle on Tuesday. Sunday will only be a half day b/c I have to work in the morning. My plan is 8 miles on Sunday, 14 on Mon, and 15 on Tuesday. It will be my first hike!

When you get back from your hike, if you can, post a short report. I'll be doing the exact same section two weeks later and it would be great to get some information on the conditions etc.... Enjoy your hike.

I am planning to do the section between High Point State Park and Kent CT between August 25 and Sept 5, tenatively with a friend joining me on Aug 31 at Bear Mtn Inn. If any of you are interested in sharing a shuttle for part or all of that let me know, as I may have to find a shuttler if my friend cant come along. (I will be driving up from NC and could do a shuttle after finishing in trade for getting one from you at the start of mine, if that would help any of you)

I'm planning on the section from NY Rt. 22 (MetroNorth Station) through to the Delaware Water Gap in New Jersey starting next Saturday, June 29th. Plan is to begin with about 7 miles per day and work up to 13-14 the final three days. Overall will take about two weeks with no rain. E-mail [email protected] if interested and we can talk.
