    Default Success Rate of WB Thru Hikers??

    Mountain Squid would probably be able to answer this best, but everyone is !! Any thoughts on the success rate to complete the AT by hikers who are WB Members vs those who are not?? What is the WB rate for AT Completion??

    Default West bound

    Shoot, I thought WB stood for West bound. That would be a little low.

    0/56 (Including this post).

    I'm here to learn, maybe find a little fellowship. However, if I see something I can offer information on, even if it's passing secondhand, I won't let any ratio stop me.

    I would think they have a higher success rate because they don't smoke they carry a u l a circuit and tarp tent rainbow, pack out there poop leave big tips in town never use a cell phone even in the life and death emergency and ford the kennebec
    it's just walking

    and they leave their dog home and also carry a gun for shooting dogs who get brought on the trail.
