    HA! I won a bet with a woman who read the book AND saw the movie and still thought she hiked the whole thing. I've done neither.

    She has thru hiked the AT before so she knows what lies ahead. I haven't tried to track her pace but if she's on or near it the record is going down.

    Numbers of miles per day you want to hike would be valuable information. The Standing Indian loop is like 27 miles and you wouldn't have to worry about a car shuttle.

    I tried using NB shoes and they just don't take big mile days with a full pack. Merrill Moab Ventilators work best for me.

    I use MapMyHike. You can set it up for walking, hiking, running, bike riding, etc. Not sure about your rqmts for phone access. You can also create routes before you do them.

    Unless things have changed I'm pretty sure you can only over night at shelters or the lodges. Anywhere else can get you booted from the park.

    Not familiar with that pack but can you keep it empty (or put something really light in it) and strap it on top of the pack? I saw a few people doing that when I did my hike.

    Zero comparison. There's nothing on the AT that remotely compares to climbing Mt Whitney much less Everest. Lifting 5 pounds 200 times is not the same as lifting 1000 lbs once.

    My 3 girls were all under 10 when I took them up there. I don't think it's 4.4 miles each way either. Plus there's a shelter to rest at.
