    Juli B from CathTParty on FB. I have to say it’s been a pleasure reading your posts and hiking vicariously through you! I don’t think it’s something I would want to do. The IDEA sounds awesome to do, but your details of the reality of it has dampened my enthusiasm. It’s so wonderful to be able to learn from others’ experiences.

    Nonetheless, I greatly admire you and your efforts. It’s a fascinating read, and I feel like I’m partaking just a bit in your adventure.


    • I never intended to crush anyone else’s desire to do the same thing! Yes, it is hard, but infinitely worth it, IMHO! Don’t let me discourage you!

    This is your sister-in-law. Know first of all that I have never aspired to hike the Appalachian Trail so you haven’t ruined anything for me. But after reading of your hardships, I know that *not* attempting this is definitely the right fit for me! In addition I have been surprised at how expensive an AT thru hike ends up being. I had never thought through the expense other than that first basic set of equipment. But of course boots wear out and “stuff happens” and food and drink must be purchased and it is not the cheap adventure that I envisioned it being.

    On the other hand, your brother John has thought about hiking the AT for years. Every night I read your latest blog entry, which is emailed to me, to him – and he has enthusiastically decided that he definitely WILL do a thru hike. It may be 10 years from now, but now he really really wants to after virtually following you on the Trail. We both enjoy your account of each day very very much and are sad when you don’t have the internet connection to submit a blog entry.

  14. Craig Hipsher here. Geocacher from Omaha. Brother of the late MrClean_ (Marc Hipsher) who you may have met once or twice a few years ago. He made me come with him to a few of your “rock” hides to make the final finds. Loving your blog! I am inspired to try this crazy thing too one day, although at 47 I ain’t getting any younger! I read on….
