For a quick and good mileage summary, here's the on-line Companion section for GA-NC (http://www.aldha.org/companyn/ga-tn08.pdf). Scroll to page 7.

I suggest contacting the ATC (http://www.appalachiantrail.org/site/c.jkLXJ8MQKtH/b.786995/k.C95F/Guidebooks_and_Maps.htm) for maps and other information. You can also review the forums here on WB. How close do you live to a decent outfitter? You should be able to find a map guidebook unless it's a real small and limited store.
