Is there any one out there male of female that would like to start meeting up once a year and doing a 5 to 7 day hike starting in Georgia or North Carolina and heading north over time I have hiked most of the trail all the way to Fontana Iím no trail runner but can easy do 10 miles a day you should be able to do the same. I donít really care about the age as long as you can carry your on gear and be responsable for yourself im 34 and have been hiking for 7 years and all my life in the woods hunting. I just like to hike on the AT at least once a year maybe more in the future.
