    There is no way we can answer that knowing nothing about you. If you're an endurance athlete, start at Springer. If you're a large individual, start in NH. If you fall somewhere in between, then...

    This sounds like a fun day. I'd also recommend waiting for cooler weather, and you'll want to be certain the water sources are flowing. Why a 10-15lb pack? Wear a vest and carry a bit of food, a few...
  3. WTB: Leki Super Makalu trekking pole

    The anti-shock piece in my Leki Super Makalu finally failed, after 10,000+ miles. Leki was happy to warranty it, and shipped me a new section at no cost. A few hundred miles later and the same thing...

    That flamed out way too quickly. Any word on other potential suitors this year?

    Awesome. It has been a very quiet year for AT record attempts. Usually there are half a dozen or so who make noise leading up to the AT record "season." This year, crickets. I thought that perhaps...

    How does the "political climate" of the US possibly influence your hiking decisions coming from Canada to the US? I've heard some stretches in regard to US politics, but this is quite possibly the...

    Congratulations! A section hike is so much more difficult than a thru-hike, for so many reasons. Logistically, travel, money...it's all a lot harder than just starting in GA and ending in ME. Well...

    I'll go against the grain of the thread and answer the last of your questions, since the others already have good answers. I think the 5-6 day timeframe will be fine if your abilities are what you...

    Absolutely my favorite shelter on the AT and a place where years after my hike I first introduced a friend to the AT. I'd be sad to see it go.

    Wow, he is really making it tremendously difficult for the next guy/gal to break his (soon-to-be) record! Good on him for truly giving it his all, leaving nothing in the tank.

    Absolutely incredible hike. It's been fun following every day. Karel has killed it, every single day, without fail. He certainly hasn't had perfect weather or conditions but he's more than gotten it...

    This I doubt. It has been noted that Karel has completed the Sierra High Route, which is certainly one of the contiguous 48's most challenging hiking objectives. The AT, even in many of its most...

    Excellent effort, Harvey! One of the fastest known times, and I'm very impressed that he continued pushing hard even when it was clear the record was out of reach. This has been fun to follow, and...

    Travis,

    Thanks for the great updates. I've really been enjoying following this, as I do all record attempts. Your first-person insight makes this attempt particularly interesting. I also...

    Odd that the article doesn't bother to mention the trail she was on. I've spent well over 100 days in Joshua Tree National Park. It's a unique and wonderful place, but not what I would really call...

    The Maryland section is ~40 miles. It's also one of the easiest sections of the AT. I think you would find it more enjoyable to hike it in a day, rather than plan on an overnight. Carry a small day...

    Time is an important aspect, and not time as in what month. You're most likely to see a bear in Shenandoah, although anywhere along the trail is possible. If you hike early and/or late your...

    Well, according to Bill Bryson, a good trail story involves a tremendous amount of fiction/artistic license.

    Baxter rules were changed a number of years ago. It is possible to receive a winter permit (it always has been). The big change is that it is now possible to receive a solo winter permit. In the...

    In addition to what has been posted, a few more to consider are enjoying the hot springs in Hot Springs and attempting the Summit Sundae challenge at the AT Cafe after summiting Katahdin.

    It's just walking - anyone can do it. The NY section is fairly mellow and at no point is far from a road. If you decide it's not for you, or an issue pops up, leaving the trail is extremely easy.
