Thread: 2012 e2e

    Default 2012 e2e

    I know it's a little early in the year but I'm sure some plans are forming.
    Who all is planning an E2E in 2012? I know of 3-4 myself included, so who all is going to be out there this year? Should we start a list/roll call?

    My daughter and I are trying to see if we can get enough time off (3 to 4 weeks, yeah we're slow) in mid-August to mid-September to E2E. If not we'll probably hike the northern part SOBO down to Maine Junction as we've both hiked the southern part already.

    Simple is good.

    Perfect start date for a SOBO, should be a great hike! I want to do an End-to-End starting at the beginning of September myself, doesn't look like I will be able to do it this year, but I'll still be out on the trail alot

    I'm likely to be doing the LT northbound - probably leaving mid to late July.

    My son and I will be out for a week or so -- probably App Gap to Laraway, more or less -- on his quest to do the whole thing, but no continuous thru for us. Good luck to all who do.

    I end to ended the LT Nobo - it's the best way -- I do understand 10K and other's SOBO though - thru hikers that have recently hiked the AT sec of the trail and want to insure that they complete the terrain north of Rutland / Killington ..... the trail does set up better S-N though - hiking gets harder, more dramatic, scenic, and impressive (above tree line) the further north you get - recommended!

    Hey Arron; I went SOBO about 4 years ago and started around the same time as you are planning. I was about 1 week ahead of the foliage change. And that particular time of year there are often groups from private schools or colleges doing orientation. What a beautiful walk it will be.

    I wanted to start a bit later but some other stuff won't allow it.

    How many monkey butlers will there be?
