    Default Getting Ready to Hike

    Leaving 3/27/11 from Woody Gap.

    Hurt back last year before I started hiking AT and started hike anyway. Hiked from approach trail to Woody Gap where pain got too much. Will start where I left off at last year.

    For those hiking 2012 all I can say I is that learned a lot on my time away from the trail. Have gone on more hikes and improved my gear. The other good thing is that this past year I took my wife on a backpacking trip. She loved it so much she'll join me on the trail at Harper's Ferry. She plans to finish the trail with me. It'll be so nice to have her with me.

    Last year would've been good but this year will be great!

    That Guy,

    You have given me hope. I am planniung to start this April, I fell on the AT back in November and found out New Years Eve that I have a bulging disc. Spent NYE in the hospital.

    Thought I would have to postpone until next 2012. I see the neurosurgeon on Friday. Hope I can do therapy and be ready by April. If not, I wll be ready next year.

    Tumbleweed,

    I hope you all the best with your back issues. I know it's not fun. I was very upset when I had to leave the trail last year. It was difficult hearing for months from people I had met making their way on the trail. When a few made it all they way to Katahdin I was happy for them but determined for myself to return to the trail.

    A man I head from who returned to the AT a year after he started because of health issues told me "When it's right for you the trail will be there. It's not going any place."

    I thought of that often in the past year.

    GOOD LUCK!!

    After my meniscus tear suregery back at the end of November I have been struggling back to health. The tear exacerbated back problems and IT band syndrome so the doc said "no go" this year. I'm bummed. I have to stay home and be a backpack widow.

    However, my husband and friend are fired up to go and are starting their hike on 3/28/11

    Good luck to all those striking out on the trail!
