@sozobe,
I found that alone hiking is lonely and hiking with one is best and or no more than 2 buds is next best. Trouble with 3 is that there gets to be a major and a minor clique(usually based upon endurance)

Everyone, I know I started this thread a long time ago, but I'm currently in the 3rd week of making this dream a reality. I've started a blog if anyone is interested in checking I out.

Additionally, if anyone on A2K has any questions that I don't cover in my blog, please ask questions there.

Hope all is well!

@maporsche,
Great! I've enjoyed what you've written so far and look forward to letting you do the walk while I sit back and read about your adventures.

Best wishes!

@maporsche,
Im keeping up with your adventure. When you get to Pine Forge PA, ya gotta eat a half gallon of ice cream. By the ime youre there itll be starting to warm up a bit more (I hope). Just beware of the vernal mosquito pools in the woods, these things can breed some big ones and without DEET, youre going to be like a caribou in the Arctic summer.

GOOD GOING BO.

@ehBeth,
Thanks for the reminder...

Yikes! Sounds like you're looking forward to May, Bo. Glad it's still an adventure for you.

Well everyone, I ended up finishing this trip about 3 months ago. It's been sort of a letdown getting home but I'm adjusting back to normal life.

My blog has been updated with everything but the final two weeks (which I'll get around to writing eventually).
