Paul and I have long dreamed of hiking the Appalachian Trail in its entirety. I hope it's a dream that becomes realized in the retirement years. We've read numerous books about thru-hikers, and were excited to see the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in person when we were in Harpers Ferry.
They hopped right in this pretend shelter and played backpackers while Paul and I wandered around.
This is a bulletin board of all the successful thru-hikers from 2011. Maybe one day my picture will be up there?
A sign from Katahdin, the mountain in Maine where the AT ends for the South-North hikers.
Of course, you don't expect to just find a bathroom did you? On the AT, you'll be looking for a privy.
What about you, readers....would you ever want to hike from Georgia to Maine?
