My dad walks 10 miles each day. We haven't seen him since 1998.
I walked the whole thing back in 77 when I was a young man. Met plenty interesting folks while doing it. Lost about 30 pounds and went through some terrific downpours the like I've never seen since. Brought me closer to God than I've ever been.
Can I hunt rabbits on it with my beagle?
Believe it or not I started hiking the Appalachian Trail back in 1997 and when I reached the Hudson Valley I felt like I was home and I sold my house and I moved to this great area!
I started hiking the Appalachian Trail back in 1978 and had since hiked and backpacked the trail by sections until I finished the whole trail on Mt. Katahdin, Maine in August 2009.
I have hiked some of the trail, but have always wantted to hike a larger portion crossing state lines, and covering a lot more ground.
