Iíve been dreaming about thru-hiking for 10 years, but until last week, making that a reality was going to have to wait at least a few more. I just learned that my next academic position doesnít start until Jan 2013 and my current one finishes in JulyÖ

SOBO 2012!!


My question: Any experienced, late-start SOBO thru-hikers have advice/pointers/things-to-consider specifically pertaining to a start that late? Maybe thereís nothing notable about it rather than a late finish and cooler temps? Iíll start in mid-August so I plan to be in GA by mid/late December (Iím fast, light, determined and optimistic).
