    2017 is it for me. Have had two different planned thru hikes not pan out due to many reasons. But 2017 is it, all obligations will be taken care of, and putting it far out enough that I'll be prepared in every way possible. I do live along the AT / LT in Vermont, so I have the best practice grounds.

    I'm currently planning for 2017. It will be down to amount of money saved but so far I'm on target. Haven't decided if I want to leave before, during, or after the bubble. Any thoughts?

    I'm planning on starting March 27, 2017. Would love to hear from other class members. Right now I'm working on a 2 year prep plan. It give me something to do and look forward to while waiting.

    That's my planned start. Sometime in March, depending on weather.

    I am planning on starting the first week of March and that seems to be a pretty big bubble. I love to home alone but it'll be pretty cool meeting all of the different kinds of people at the shelters. Hiking in the bubble is is for me!

    Nice to see some other folks who are looking this far in advance. I've been dreaming of a thru-hike for 10+ years now and mentally penciled in 2017 as the year to do it (I'll be turning 40 on the trail.) My younger son who will be 16 then is planning on joining me as well (husband & older son are not intrigued by spending 6 months in the woods!) So far the only thing really set is starting around April 1st, so that by the end of the month we land in Hot Springs for my birthday. The rest is yet to come.

    I Just signed up to this website for that very reason. I have recently decided to finally do my thru hike 2017. What date are you planning for? I figure id better start planning now.

    My wife and I are dead set on thru-hiking in 2017, although the continued drought has given us pause about whether the PCT will still be feasible at that point. Hopefully the water situation doesn't keep getting worse.

    I noticed a lot of people are planning to start in March - would you plan to factor in some rest time before hitting the Sierras? I know April is the usual start time due to the snow pack needing time to melt. I suppose it's a moot point if the snow is as low as this year.

    I'm making plans to hike in 2017, and I've told a couple of people (but I haven't achieved critical mass there, yet!)

    To put it another way, I'm walking more now and my pinterest board has a link to a really nice spork.

    That's my plan. I did 600+ miles in 2015. Hope to go all the way in 2017.

    I am planning a 2017 Thru Hike with a couple, maybe three section hikes to work out my gear choices and hills.

    Another for NOBO mid March, depending on weather forecasts. I'll be the really slow guy.

    Planning on finishing my section hike with a long southbound from Maine to Pennsylvania or New Jersey in 2018. Though it could end up being 2019.
