    Trail Name: Braveheart
    Direction/Start Location: NOBO from Springer
    Estimated Start Date: First week of February
    Approach Trail: Did it on my 2020 attempt; no need to repeat this year.

    I am a rollover from the Class of 2020. I'm going to slap a mask onto my gear list, redo the 85 miles I got through last year, and hopefully make it all the way to Katahdin this time!

    Default Non-Standard Flip Flop, beginning August 2021

    Trail Name : TBD
    Direction / Start: Alternative Flip/Flop: My wife and I are planning on starting at the Delaware Water Gap (DWG) in early August and head Southbound, hoping that the Nat'l Parks, ATC, shelters, campsites, etc are open to hikers (Recognizing the Covid pandemic under control, and hopefully, by then we'll have been vaccinated) so you don't have to feel like a "thief in the night". When we get to Georgia, take the winter off and in mid April (?) 2022 go back to DWG and head north to Katahdin, hoping to minimize the early season mosquitos, black flies, and Vermont Mud in the process, and still get it done within 12 months.

    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. ATC's Covid 19 information and updates can be found here.

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

    Good Luck, Have Fun and be mindful of Covid!

    SOBO July 20th
    I reserved a site at Katahdin Stream CG for July 19-21. I added the extra day in case the weather turns out to be really crummy on the 20th, I'll have the option to hike Katahdin on the 21st instead.

    This is what my starting gear list looks like at the moment: https://lighterpack.com/r/j1rqaf
    As cooler weather warrants it, I'll probably swap out the poncho and wind shell for my REI 3L GTX rain shell, Helium rain pants, and a mid layer.

    I am hiking NOBO starting at SNP on April 11. I should be in Harper's Ferry about 4/21. Hopefully we can meet along the trail. I am listed on this site as layman but I am hoping to use Grey Goat as my trail name.

    Plan to start from Harpers Ferry & hike south to Georgia. Anticipated start around first week in August. Also, plan to use my on vehicle due to COVID....moving the car south with shuttles (about every 50 miles) & use for traveling to resupply. Trying to reduce hitchhiking and minimizing shuttles. Hoping this is doable.
