    No trail name at present. It hasn't found me yet :-)
    NOBO - it seems the wise approach for someone whose never done any long distance hiking.
    March 9th for the actual start of the trail. Planning to arrive March 5th, do the lower half of approach trail from the arch, up the stairs, to the lodge. Will stay at the lodge 5th-8th for the Kick Off, then take off the morning of the 9th to finish approach and make Springer.
    We'll let the rest come out over the next 358 days :-)

    Trail Name: None Yet
    Direction: NOBO
    Estimated Start Date: 3/12/2015
    Approach Trail - nope!
    Other Info: (pasted from meet and greet thread)
    NOBO or SOBO: NOBO - Partly for the traditional
    experience. Also, I want to be trail-hardened before dealing with the
    Whites and Southern Maine. Also, Mt. Katahdin seems an epic way to
    finish. Also, more people hike NOBO and I look forward to meeting new
    and interesting people on trail.

    Reason for thru hike: Because the AT is there. To undertake an epic
    challenge. To prove I can plan, execute, and actually finish something
    that's really hard and demanding. To break the mold of a comfortable,
    formulaic daily routine. To gain a new appreciation for things that are
    taken for granted on a daily basis. To see some fabulous scenery.

    Experience: 30 or so multi-night (min 2, max 7) camping trips. Most were
    in a barrier island habitat (False Cape State Park in VA), and a few
    were in the Blue Ridge Mountains (Crabtree Falls area). Also several
    10-12 mile day hikes (Torry Ridge Loop near Sherando Lake) a couple
    years ago.

    Yes, indeed
    Nothing much beyond this... just trying to stay busy between now and then to help the time pass. Seems we're going to have a great class!

    Yes. What's eight miles when I'll be hiking 2,180 more after that?
    Reason: I've been grinding through school and following a straight path into the real world, but I figure that I need to take some time off after I graduate from college and do some hiking and soul searching.

    I just recently retired and need to do this. I'm more concerned about the mental aspects than I am the physical. It should be a great ride.

    Hey CaityJ my name is Samantha. I was just wondering if you are doing a solo hike? I will have friends join me on sections but on some parts I'll probably be by myself, do you have any experience with this?
    Let me know
