    Hi, all. Nearly my first post here, but I've been lurking a good while.

    I thought I had to wait until 2015, but I recently figured out a way to move my hike up to 2014.

    See you in Springer, March 2014! WOOHOO!

    Greetings from the UK!

    I'm looking at a potential first week of March 2014 start to my adventure. Hoping to manage a thru-hike (fitness/ will power/ money allowing), it'll be my first time in The States so i'm really looking forward to hiking somewhere different.

    Occupying myself with planning, saving, accumulating the gear I need, and figuring out logistics of getting to and from the trail at the minute.

    Hope to see some of you out on the trail some time!
    Will.

    My step-daughter and I will be hiking the AT in 2014, start date around 4.1.14, we will start at Springer and head north. Our plan is to take the train from Idaho to Georgia. We are already doing small backpacking trips, we will continue to hike during the winter (never know what the mountains along the AT will bring) we want to be prepared. I will be taking a leave of absents from my job as a RN. We are currently looking at Ultralight tents and packs, have a few in mind right now. We will be dehydrating our own food and having a family member ship it out for us. Not sure what my step-daughters trail name will be, but look for Baby Face Nelson (that will be me).

    I was going to make my second attempt in 2013 but it is looking like 2014 for me. Disappointed but still excited. Plan on doing alot of weekend trips though. After 1st attempt this past April I'm addicted to the AT

    What a joy for me when I realised I was retired and could make a thru hike! So March 2014 hopefully will find me on Springer headed north. Lots of work to do between now and then, and this site certainly helps with getting ready!

    Hi, everyone!
    I'm planning a 2014 thru hike, and looking for some feedback on my gear list. I'm trying to stay light, but comfortable. The items marked with XXXX are ones that I already own. Also, I forgot to add little things like first aid kit, TP, a lighter, and duct tape on the list, but those are all relatively light and take up little space (tape around a water bottle, etc). I'm kind of thrilled about the base weight under 20#...and I'm sure I could go lighter--example: the pack. I know it's heavy, but it fits me *so well* and is *so comfortable* so I know it will compensate for it's heft. Also, I'm hoping to keep gear purchases under $1500.

    Any feedback? Additions? Subtractions?

    Thanks, everyone! I can't wait to see you out on the trail!

    Hi Catie Rae,

    Welcome to the Class of 2014 and welcome to Whiteblaze!

    I could not open your gear list link above due to: "Access not allowed"

    Maybe fix the link or access??
