    Cool 2017 Thru-Hike Registry

    The trail is calling ... time to make a commitment all you 2017ers!

    Trail Name
    Direction

    Estimated Start Date
    Approach Trail - yes or no
    any additional info that you want the world to know

    Also consider registering with ATC to help avoid crowded conditions in GA. Weekends are typically busy as are March 1st, 15th and April 1st.

    If anything changes, please update via a reply to this thread or send me a PM.

    After you have completed your hike, don't forget to report back in with completion dates and how far you hiked!

    Good Luck and Have Fun!


    See you on the trail,

    Arrive Atlanta from Australia 10th, day to get food/fuel and mail a few things, then get to Springer.

    If you hear a melodious aussie accent from a 50+ young man, it's probably me, so say g'day. Meeting you is one of the reasons I'm bushwalking the AT.

    No trail name yet. Chip will work for now.
    NoVo
    Starting March 5.
    No final decision yet on the Approach Trail. I have previously hiked it several times, but those were on section hikes. I am still contemplating wether or not I want to include it as part of my thru hike or not.
