    Default So if the AT is now 2181 miles long........

    and back in 1992 when I did it the length was 2146.6 miles long, that means the trail grew by 34.4 miles over the last 20 years. Amazing!! Guess I gotta go out there I hike those miles.

    Thanks! I had a feeling I was off. The miles I had were from 2012.

    It was 2150-something when I did it in '98. I always just rounded up to 2200, figuring in the side trails and whatnot. Guess they should round up to 2250 now.
    Don't take anything I say seriously... I certainly don't.

    I'm going to have to go back to my Ed Garvey book to see how long it was in the early 70's when I started.
