    I was wondering the same thing about "checking for damage" when we're supposed to be clear of the trail and shelter areas. Seems a bit hypocritical to me the way that was written, but I had...

    Just trying to keep busy. Lots of yard work, painting the house, and welding/fabricating a roll cage for my baja bug project.

    You can't really rely on a designated plan. so to speak, for the entire trail. This trail will take its toll on your body (I lost 46 lbs on my thru if that's any indication). What I did was had a...

    My toes gave me mine - Thumper. Self inflicted trail name before I tried my 1st thru in '15. I didn't want one of those actually given on the trail forever to known as hewhofartsalot or something...

    Nothing exciting here. Went to work, apparently I'm "essential" (hotel maintenance) so there's that. But, I am planning a short section soon so that's pretty fun.

    I agree. Gatherings at this point are probably not the safest place to be. But on that note, a walk in the woods is probably the safer bet than me going to work every day with hundreds of people...

    Well that escalated quickly. Just kiddin'.
    I have to somewhat agree with med2. I'm planning a section (4 days) probably the end of April. But I'm also not going in town, there'll be a car at...

    I would certainly vote to leave the shelters in place (they do come in handy and a lot of people love 'em), but just let the already used tenting areas around them be an option and not regulated to...

    Same here, end of April/early May time frame. Minimal contact with anyone, tenting it and steering clear of shelters, no town stops in between.

    Hopefully this policy will remain after they finally realize the tent sites around the shelters are already used daily with or without the shelters being full.

    I woke up on day 6 and about an hour into the day, crossed over the state line. I started at the arch at the base of the falls. It's tough going (nothing like the mountain climbing in VT, ME) but...

    I'll 2nd Uncle Johnny's. Been there a few times (stayed once), passed through a few more. Seems to be going downhill and should be one the best places as the AT runs right by it (right across the...

    THIS ^ exactly! Seriously, you can't honestly think the weekend party goers that drive up and trash the nearest shelter for a fun overnighter are going to take a test before they head out? So now,...

    I used the AWOL guide .pdf and that was good enough to get me through my thru. It's definitely the more "straight forward" approach from point a to point b though and doesn't show things like that...

    Don't forget, there's a ton of ways to save on the trail as well. Limit town stops and hostel/motel stays is probably the biggest one. Gear doesn't have to be the latest, greatest. Use what's good...

    Another leave it from me. I've seen a lot of forest service folks use pink marker tape to mark short sections of trail they plan on repairing or relocating. I also agree with Rain Man, pack out...

    I came out swinging and made it through Ga on the 6th day (starting at the arch). I did sort of cheat a little, though. I attempted to hike 2 years prior and made to Roanoke before throwing in the...

    I wouldn't expect to make a certain amount of miles per day. Just go and listen to your body. If you feel you can reach the next shelter (or camp spot (plan ahead a little each day)) then go for...

    Hopefully they'll be able to save some of it and make a smaller 1 or 1.5 story shelter, keeping the "barn" theme would be pretty cool though too. I missed it on my thru attempt , decided to press on...
