In the last post we covered the basic logistic scheme for our 160 day, 2,185 mile hike from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mt Katahdin, Maine; Better known as the Appalachian Trail or AT. The next part of the planning process dealt with figuring out how many miles we had to walk each day and making sure it was a realistic number and of course continuing to train and stay as fit as possible so that we don’t get our asses kicked in the first three weeks!
The Appalachian Trail, or AT, is known as the granddaddy of long distance hiking. With approximately 2,185 miles separating Springer Mountain, Georgia with Mt Katahdin, Maine it is not something to be undertaken lightly. As the time to put our money where our mouth is and start walking draws near, Lindsay and I have been asked a multitude of questions relating to our preparations. The next four AT posts will hopefully answer some of those!
