    I have wanted to do this since I was 14. I finally got a job where I was making enough money for a thru hike to be feasible. Can't wait to get out in the cold and rain!

    For planning purposes only, at this point. Too many variables to commit just yet.

    Trail name: None yet...need one.
    Direction: Southbound from Katahdin
    Start date: Mid-July to 1 August, 2016
    Approach trail: Not sure yet

    Looking to make lifelong friends and experience kindred COMMUNITY while on the trail learning about myself and experiencing life, unplugged. Can't find a girl worth marrying here in the city. Maybe my luck will be better on the Trail...

    Trail Name: Susie
    Direction:NOBO
    Estimated Start Date: April 8th

    Approach Trail - yes or no: no
    any additional info that you want the world to know: I have wanted to do this for over 20 years. I have been doing 1-2 week trips on the SHT preparing and checking all of my gear out so I can make good choices of what to take. I cant wait to get back on the trail! Anyone else leaving around that time? I am going solo planning on meeting people while I am out there as that seems to be the best option.

    Start date: Sometime in March
    Approach trail: Haven't thought about it yet.

    Just in the initial planning stages.
    Had plans on going into the military out of college but unfortunately leg injuries set me back. I figure what better way to train up than hiking for half a year.

    Flying into Georgia on the 6th, approach trail on the 7th and then starting on the 8th as well. I am also going solo and hope to meet people along the way. I just posted a pic of all my gear and can't wait to go. I have also been packing trying out everything. Still trying to figure out the best way to hook my umbrella to my pack. Anyway, might see you there.

    Hey there Kameyosekmoon, we are all people of color, just different colors. No matter the color, sounds like you have the right attitude and you might give me a little push when I need it. look forward to possible seeing you out there. I have a March 8th start date though.
