    I was hoping to do an Alska to Patagonia bike tour next year, but may come up a little short on funds. If that doesn't work out, I'll be thru-hiking the AT NOBO instead. Adventure junkie needs a fix.

    I attempted a thru Mar. 2017 but only got about 50 miles when I had to get off trail and was hospitalized for a week. Doin' better now so plan is to start all over mid Mar. 2018. I will be retracing my previous 50 miles. Trail name 2017 was Lung Cookie.....don't ask.

    Hoping for Mid to the end of March to begin. I will be with my husband. We don't party. Right now it depends if I can get the cracked vertebrae to heal in my upper back from being hit by a car. If it is not quite right hubby will be my B.O.B. So we will be slow walkers.

    Yes, I have decided to retire in January 2018 and realize my dream of thru-hiking the AT. Have already section hiked Harpers Ferry to Bennington over the years. I am deep in the planning stage and in the process of upgrading my 10-15 year old gear. Tentatively planning an early to mid April Start. Like you, I don't drink or party or care for large crowds. Keep in touch Blackdog. BTW, is it a black lab?

    Where do you do your hiking? I usually head to Harriman or the Catskills

    I am planning a NOBO thru in 2018. Not set on a date yet, but likely around the March 1st time frame so I can hopefully finish by mid-July. Still trying to find a hiking partner though, as I'm ok hiking alone but promised my wife I wouldn't. :-)

    You won't be hiking alone even if you want to. There are quite a few of us who aren't averse to starting in late winter. Also remember that the group here at WB is just the tip of the AT iceberg. Pretty much any NoBo start is going to be a crowded affair.

    Oh yes, should have clarified. I'm looking forward to all the people I'll meet on the trail and hike with! This is for a permanent thru-hiking partner day in and day out ... more for her peace of mind than mine, but I won't argue if it makes the trip more comforting for loved ones.
