    Anyway, my earlier point keeps getting missed...

    I developed as a hiker during my hike, despite the age, weight, and fitness situation I started with, to the point that not only did I finish the AT, I got fit to the point that I (just doing the math by my routinely doing 13-mile-days in MAINE, with higher days in VT/MA/CT) became capable of thruing in an average or less length of time, were I to do it again. There are reasons for that, and I believe that my greater-than-average (among thruhikers) attention to nutrition was one of them.
    You may consider Thru hiking whatever you want, for yourself but as for the ATC, try again. Straight from the ATC website:
    Thru Hiking

    A thru-hiker is a hiker or backpacker who has completed or is attempting to walk the entire Appalachian Trail in a 12-month period (not necessarily a calendar year).

    I found this in 30 seconds, after remembering reading it during my research.

    Sorry, but people who publish wrong information need to be corrected.

    Ha ha ha ha ha... this is awesome...

    You do know that you are trying to correct the great Minnesota Smith, don't ya? And he completed his thru-hike some 10 years ago, and hasn't been on this site for some time either.

    Great zombie thread.

    I'm so confused, I'm not sure if I lost my horse or found a rope.

    Look at take-a-knee post 2007. He mentions Scott Jurek

    Not only that but it also allows bypassing white blazed sections for safety reasons 'even by vehicle' is allowed.
