Appalachian Trail Map

First Things First

Who ever said "A journey of a 1000 miles begins with the first step" might want to consider, "A journey on the Appalachian Trail begins with getting work in order to purchase the equipment one needs to make this 2179 mile hike. Then there is the funds you'll need as you actually hike. I'm looking feverishly for work, as I've had the dream of a Thru-Hike since 1973. Perhaps 2015 will be the year for me. I've looked at a lot of the new gear they have now and can't believe the lightness of everything compared to the first equipment I bought back in 73' and 74'. I get excited looking at it and hope that the trip might even begin before the 2015 date.

Well, it's back to doing more job applications so that this trip will become a reality.

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more:
