    Default Welcome to WhiteBlaze.net

    Welcome to the WhiteBlaze Network!

    The WhiteBlaze Network was created by a community of Appalachian Trail enthusiasts. Its intended purpose is to provide a forum for free exchange of ideas about the Appalachian Trail including its history, supporting the trail, hiking the trail, and general issues important to those that enjoy the Appalachian Trail.

    This site is not about any one person or their idea of what the Appalachian Trail should be or to dictate to you (the hiker) how the trail is supposed to be used. We leave that for you to decide. Interact with the other members to get a better idea of what others on the trail are thinking and maybe you will get a better idea of what it is all about.

    If you have any questions, don't look for an administrator with all the answers, even about how to run this site. Instead, come in and ask the members. Become a member, and you are equally as important as the rest of us.

    So come on in and enjoy yourself!

    Thumbs up welcome

    Attrol: I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the super forum. I really enjoy it...recently I've really taken off with it. Lots o' fun...even w/ the AH. I can see how it takes all kinds, right. But you guys (you have staff?) have done a great job. The site is very accessable, simple to figure out, and a joy to visit. I put up some photos, check 'um out. Be seeing you on the site....Kozmic Zian

    Default OK, I did!

    Nice Site. I have added my name and hope to gain some valuable info for my Trail Angel work that I look forward to so much each spring and summer. Have been baking homemade cookies and handing them out to thru hikers for two years from a downtown Waynesboro,VA office location. Have met some of the most wonderful people! I wish I could drop everything and go along with them! Sadly my office is no longer downtown as I have changed jobs but I travel the Blue Ridge Parkway to work every day now and plan to visit with the hikers there. Hoping to get some sort of feast or fest going in Waynesboro too for this years hikers. Won't compare to Damacus but it should be fun. I'd love to hear hikers ideas on what would be appealing. Look me up as you pass through! I am on the Free Hiker Shuttle call list that you get at the Rockfuish Gap Visitors Center.

    Thank you my Angel, Saint, Hero, your cookies are great. I would move to the wonderful town of Waynesboro, where I've left all my worldly possessions unguarded at the Y three times, but I wouldn't want to lower the property values.

    Default Newbie From New Jersey...

    Just signed-up yesterday and wanted to say "hello" to all.
    I am fairly new to hiking, although, I've probably hiked many inconsistant miles through the years.
    I reside a mile or so from the trail. An area near the NY/NJ border referred to as Stairway to Heaven. I am fortunate to live in a beautiful area and have recently begun discovering it through hiking.
    This site seems like a wealth of information and was lucky enough to stumble upon it while searching for info on "The Secret Shelter".
    Thanks for offering such a well organized place for info and experienced discussion.
    Glad to be here.

    Is that the climb up to Pinwheel Vista outside Vernon? I had a lovely breakfast up there on a cool morning in early July 2004 after climbing up from my stealth hammock campsite a few miles south. Here is a picture of my view looking south towards Vernon. You can clearly see the High Point Monument on a ridge about 20 miles to the west, but my picture didn't do the view justice.

    Yes... exactly.

    Not sure if it's just me, but... where?

    I've been visitng this site off and on over the past couple of years and finally decided to join tonight. I'm from Eastern, NC where I have been working as a Correctional Officer for the NC Dept. of Corrections for the past 15 years. My plan is to attempt a thru-hike very soon after retirement (2021). As of now, I'm section hiking the trail. Hope to meet some cool people here at White Blaze.net

    I really wish I could. But my job sucks. I only have two weeks vacation a year and one of those weeks is manditory for our shut down week. The other one I am trying to save for Trail Days.

    I can not wait until 2010 when I can tell them to pack sand.
