    :banana Georgia Thru-Hike Patch

    To earn the GA Thru-Hiker Patch, what are the limitations/requirements as far as the time frame in which it is completed? If I hiked the Georgia section in smaller sections within a year for example, could I still earn the patch?

    From the GATC..."If you've hiked the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail, you're eligible for a Georgia Thru-Hiker patch!"
    Trail Miles: 4,523.3
    AT Map 1: Complete 2013-2021
    AT Map 2: 279.4

    So, there's no time limit? I read somewhere that there is a 1-year time limit.

    There is no time limit, just as there is no time limit for the ATC. I know the patch is called a thru hiker patch but it reads "90 Miler". I believe the 1 year is a non official concept to designate a "Thru Hiker" AT completion vs. an AT completion done over time in sections.
