    I am 67 year old male and live in Murfreesboro. I have done several sections of the AT and looking to do more. I do not hike real fast but I eventually get there.

    I am 62, not a high mileage hiker anymore. Have done most of the A.T. from S. Va south. Still have 2 sections to fill in. Planning on a 90 mile section in early Oct. from Clingmans Dome S. to Winding Stair Gap. Planning on 9ish days to complete this. Hiked with a guy out of Ill. last year. Let me know if ur interested.
    The Way I Get To Where I'm Going Is To Walk Away From Where I've Been.

    I'm looking at possibly hiking the 77 mile Foothills Trail in SC/NC. Maybe as soon as December, so in just a few weeks. Interested? I'm a 62 yo female, also retired. Easy to moderate pace. No time constraints, Explore some of the side trails that lead to views and waterfalls. Finish when we finish. Looks like there are some really cool campsites. Plenty of water along the way.

    needlefish,

    I live in Nolensville. I am 58 and try to get out when I can. I am retiring in 6 months so I hope to get out more! I do overnights in Savage Gulf as well as a couple multi day hikes (Big South Fork, Joyce Kilmer, etc) when possible. I have done the AT up to Virginia, Colorado, Wyoming, North Carolina, etc so I have experience on the trail.
