    For anyone interested in how much time you'll be spending in that shelter/tent/sleeping bag in 2009...assuming you go to bed when the sun sets...here's an idea, DST observed, based on 12 miles a day with anearly April start date... and if you want to celebrate for a few weeks in sunny florida at the end (like us) then you see that as well:
    4/4/09 719am - 802pm Springer
    5/4/09 638am - 824pm Smokies
    6/4/09 609am - 842pm Damascus
    7/4/09 543am - 840pm PA
    8/4/09 552am - 807pm Connecticut
    9/4/09 617am - 707pm Gorham
    10/4/09 637am - 610pm Maine (bangor)

    10/16/09 727am - 700pm Southern Florida

    Look in my WB gallery. Lots of sunrise and sunset pics from the AT in NC/TN.
    I'm not really a hiker, I just play one on White Blaze.

    also, it's not planning. planning constitutes studying information to make a plan more plausible. I just wanted to know. sorry you didn't.

    whatever happened to hike your own hike???

    Nice little chart.

    One of the cool things that happens on a long hike is seeing the day length change, and moving through the corresponding seasons.

    It's especially interesting if you're in a part of the country you're not used to, for instance, when I went up to Maine to start. Summer days are a LOT longer up there than down here.
    If not NOW, then WHEN?

    Can't explain why, but over all of my hikes, the sunsets in VT have been particularly spectacular. Bromley, Baker Peak, Smart's Mountain. All beautiful.

    I spent some time in SW FL. Waiting for the sun to come up was maddening.

    Max doesn't hate anybody.

    But you are going to get uptight about me pointing out that you don't really need to buy a wallet if you already have one...

    Put me on ignore.

    Dollar store. Or get what makes you happy. That link had a vegan wallet, too.

    Anyone ever used the plastic sleeve State Farm used to give you to put your insurance card Inside?

    The other cool thing is that you'll get to know the cycle of the moon as well, as you go. One thing that I miss about not hiking is never knowing what stage the moon is, or even whether it's waxing or waning. Too many buildings in the way to get a clear view of the sky. It's amazing how in tune to nature you'll get in your hike.

    Haiku.

    Thanks for asking the question- I didn't realize Bangor had that much daylight in October. Not overplanning at all, a little knowledge doesn't hurt most folks
