Just puttin' it out there that I am still starting in Early march 2006 alone if anybody out there in white blaze land is also hiking alone. I am planning on hitting the trail with no real set plan. Why would you want to? My destination is the big K and how I get there is in the air. I am a motivated 24 year old male just tryin to hike. WELL I better stop before this starts to sound like a personal ad.

Don't sweat it, although early March is a fairly challenging start date. You will find other masochists sharing the trail.

Currently, I'm contemplating a start date around 3/20

I will be around mid-Feb 2006.

I think i will get a whiteblaze patch and sew it on may hat, maybe we all can hike together for parts of the trail. I estimate six months so hopefully i will be done.

It is a very young country (27years) in the Horn Of Africa (top right on the map).

Were are on a humanitarian Aid mission in one of the hottest areas in the world, in a country that has very little money. We do MEDCAPS and VETCAPS, medical and veterinary services to the peoples of Djibouti, Eritrea, Eithiopia, Kenya, Uganda, and others.

If you have anymore questions, send me and email.

Ditto, K-Bear. We'll be moving slow, though - plan on taking a full 7 months, so we may not meet up. I'm planning like crazy. I'm a planner. Yep, an "A" type. I hear there is a cure for it now. ;) Female, 36, FL.

April 1 - 25, TBA, F 40 yo Section Hiker from Florida
Hope to meet some of you, if you want to partner up for the first few weeks, days whatever PM me and maybe we can get to know each other prior to heading out.
Heading the for K when I get there, no agenda no rush, but like to start out slow first week and then move into 20 -25 mile days when the body gives the AOK.

I haven't spent much time on solitary hikes, and I figure the AT this spring will be a challenge. I do expect to see a lot of other people in the early part, and likely catch up at the shelters, if nothing else.

Looking to work within my means and hike north to the big K. If anyone else is planning a March 1st start, and is in a similar position (that is, without company) I'm certainly interested in a partner. :sun

You are staring your hike a year earlier then me. I will be starting my thru-hike in the spring of í07. I plan to have fiends and family hike various sections of the trail with me throughout my thru-hike. The one problem is that some of these friends and family might slow me down a bit, so I will have to plan things well. Maybe by the time I start my hike I will have someone to hike with. I donít know, but it sure will not stop me.

Go to a outfitter, try on all the boots you can, buy the ones that fit you the best.

I plan on leaving on Mar 18 or 19. Hope to see you guys out there. The hiker hostel is a good place to overnight before you start. They will shuttle you to either Amicalola or near Springer.
