    Default Finally finished AT sectioning

    I finished the last 220 miles from Rangely to Katahdin this year. The last 3rd of Maine was the crown jewel of the AT. I had excellent weather (cool and breezy) with only a couple of afternoon T-Storms of concern. I'm looking forward to re-doing some sections when I get a chance.

    So awesome. As a weekend warrior, I dream about section hiking the AT, but lately I've come to the realization that the AT for me will end at Damascus or maybe Harper's ferry.

    How long did it take you if you don't mind me asking.

    Soo cool. Congrats man!

    I started in 1999 and had to take from 2005 to 2009 off due to job loss. It was much easier in the early years, except that each year it took about 4-5 days to get over soreness and minor blisters. I often had to take a zero after 4-5 days. I remember in 2004 hiking from Duncannon, PA to Great Barrington, MA. I was in such great shape that I just wanted to keep going, but I had to get back to FL and find a job.

    My toughest year was last year, coming off the Whites, and tackling early parts of Maine with a bad knee. I was quite relieved this year to find that there were long stretches of reasonable terrain between the steeper climbs. There were 2 days in the 100 mile wilderness that I did back-to-back 20 mile days. I know that is no big deal for they younger guys, but I thought those long days would never happen again

    Congrats JB from another section hiker! I finished this summer too - my last section was Monson to Katahdin. It took me 17 years but I would do it again in a heartbeat. I'm already thinking about hitting some other trails next year

    Awesome! Many congratulations. Sectioning the trail is a tough thing to do and a major accomplishment.

    That's awesome.....Congrats! I'm planning on hiking SOBO HF to Springer beginning next April, and in 2017 hiking NOBO HF to Katahdin to finish it. I'm really excited!
