    Ok not a thru hike to some people but I'm coming back next year to start where I dislocated my hip this year. Just short of mile 317 near Sams Gap. Big cost to repeat this but I hope to see the early starters and the speedsters.

    Ian and leslie hurst (Springbok and Dandelion) will be starting 4 April NOBO We live in STELLENBOSCH South Africa. The trail has caugh our imagination and after completing two large section hikes (Springer to harpers ferry and Delaware water gap to Monson) we now want to do the thru hike - proper. We have just fallen in love with the trail and the people we have met there.
    Of of course we are looking forward to meeting more people and renewing some friendships with others.
    The z pack tents and sleeping bags are driving next week, osprey back packs are bought. The rest of our gear will the same as we used on our section hikes.
