This is a good post for someone who had questions about starting a thru hike alone...There are plenty of folks to befriend/hike with.

No matter how you look at it there are going to be a lot of folks headed north Saturday. Maybe the weather will keep getting cooler and make a few reconsider a later start.

It will be interesting to track these 39 people starting the first week to see how they compare against the overall trend that shows 20% not making it past Neels Gap and 70% not making it to Katahdin.

I'd like to think whiteblaze members are more prepared than the average and the numbers will skew better.
