    Meeting fellow hikers will be no problem. Cost depends on your need and hiking style. Depends on how you are buying food. Depends on how often you plan on making a visit to town. Depends of the weather conditions - if it is raining or snowing and you have to hold up in town at a hotel it adds up. Plenty of thru hikes on the cheap and plenty who spend $5,000.00 or more.
    Have fun. Safe guard your finances and play your financial cards close to your vest.

    +1. Plenty of hikers on the trail in March and April -- you'll meet compatible people pretty quickly.

    If you have $5000 set aside, you probably won't run out of money. And if you have some left over, that'll be good for making the transition back to the world.
