Anyone that would like to accompany me on a northbound thru starting in '08. Planning is still in initial stages and flexibility is a must given I am waiting until I am finished with my sevice in the US Army so I am unable to provide any hard dates at this time. Also any advice at all would be welcome. I've been unable to really enjoy any hiking in the past 4 years due to 2 tours in Iraq and 1 in Korea. All I've managed is a few dayhikes in the rockies and one summit of Pikes Peak.

You don't need anyone else to hike the AT with.
You are going to have a window of opportunity to hike the AT. If you don't grab it life will take you in other directions.
When I got out of the service the first time in 1968 I was going to hike the AT because of a huge newspaper article of someone who had hiked it that year. Instead I married my future ex wife. I had to wait until my sons were grown and I was retired. Don't sweat the small stuff...just go hike.
Thank you for your service.
