    It's nice to see someone else out here that is years away. I'm planning on 2018 when I plan on retiring. At least for 6 months while I hike the AT. Just joined the forum to start learning.

    I was planning on 2014, but I am just starting a new job that I had been trying to land for awhile. I will probably have to wait before asking for a leave of absence!! I will plan for 2916, that will give me time to really try out my own dehydrated foods and ultra lite gear. I'm an older woman, so the less weight on my back the better. I'm super excited about this hike!! Until I get on the AT I
    Will be hiking a lot in the Sawtooth mountains in Idaho.

    Just tell your boss and/or wife that you ARE going on the Trail in 2016, so they can just shut their pie-holes. Guaranteed that you will be fired and divorced with the added bonus of losing everything, so you don't have to be worried about a lot of gear, as your ex- will have taken everything.

    Just kiddin' - I'm in for 29 Feb 2016 - try #2. Gear getting bought and gear weight is coming down - bills getting paid - wife coming to grips with the 2nd attempt - boss already notified and agreed to it.

    Keep in touch everyone.

    Either 2016 or 2017. I just started grad school again, but I *should* be done in three years instead of the four I thought I would be in for. It may mean a later start in 2016 or holding off until 2017.

    I assume you mean 2016? If so, that is my goal as well. My son is graduating high school in 2015 and it is my plan to hit the trail the year after. So I do not consider myself "older" but I guess I am not really a spring chicken either. Please email me if you are interested in keeping in touch to prepare to start around the same time. aimeekg97@gmail.com

    I was planning on a 2017, but I just found out I'll be graduating in December of 2015. So hopefully I can make it in 2016! Can't wait!!

    It's 2016 for me as well, since this year is out of the question and next year is the JMT. Leaning towards SOBO but might have to do NOBO because of starting/ending date convenience.
