    Hardly the first. Consider all the pioneers who traveled cross-country with their infants.

    This was from a hike I participated in in 1980-81. Started in San Francisco, hiked to Lewes, Delaware in 14 months - including the AT from Damascus to Harper's Ferry. The couple with the six month old infant in the film made it the entire way, sometimes taking alternate routes through the most hostile terrain out west.

    Just a note, starting at 2:02 in the film, the music is performed by the infant in the film - Jamie Pyles (obviously a few years later).

    A one year old kid is unlikely to remember any of it.

They were all packed up and headed out South. Mom and Dad was relaxed and happy, Ellie the baby was smiling and curious. Talk to them a few minutes, they are all doing well and were in good spirits to continue the thruhike.

    Their start point at 311 in Va is at mile 708, so they have done a little over 600 miles if they are 100 miles from Springer. I think they started March 21st, so they are doing pretty good.

    They made it to Springer yesterday, so they have completed 708 miles.

    12.9 MPD average if they started March 21st. If they plan to flip to Katahdin, they had best wait a while. Even here in the Whites, not all the snow is gone and streams are running high and fast making fording very dangerous. It will be at least another few weeks before getting through the 100 mile wilderness is possible, assuming it finally stops raining! We got snow this morning too, probably a good 6" up at elevation! Central/northern Maine is getting the brunt of this late season Nor'easter, another inch or two of rain.
    The AT - It has it's ups and downs...

    I wonder if they'll come back up to Roanoke and regroup, then head north from 311.

    After walking 700 miles south to Springer, they took a break waiting for the weather to improve at Katahdin. They are now at Katahdin, ready to head south.

    Were they allowed to summit with the baby?
