    I'll compile all the data into a spreadsheet which will be available for viewing in the articles section.

    ATC also has a registration page. Check it out here.

    Lots of bear activity on the trail in recent years. Take appropriate, responsible actions with your food bag.

    Good Luck and Have Fun!

    Good Day.
    A quick update on my status. Started on the Feb 12 on the Approach trail. Made it to Neels Gap, then I fell and broke my Clavicle and 1st rib, so I'm off trail for a bit. I think I will go with Killdeer for a trail name when I get back on.

    Hopefully everyone is seriously considering postponing their NOBO attempts or are considering flipping to a SOBO attempt in a few months?

    Default 2020 Thru- hike

    Well my intentions were to do a traditional thru-hike South to North starting on April 1st, just how I started on my first thru hike in 1980 40 years ago.
    However, with the pandemic of Covid - 19, that itinerary had to be changed and I have a new start date of May 30th and will be doing a "flip-flop" hike,
    starting in SNP at Big Meadows to Katahdin and then Big Meadows south to Springer Mtn.

    I will be monitoring the situation and if the pandemic relinquishes it's grip on our nation, I will set sail as planned. If it doesn't well there's always next year

    I am curious as to how many thru-hikers this year are changing their itineraries as well?

    Happy Trails,
    "Rippin Reils"
