AOL Backpack forum members have organized a thru hike that just started in
June.  The plan is to be at Springer by the last week in December.    Their
is a schedule and journal (including pictures) for the different sections of
the thru  I would like to participate in one of the 3 Georgia sections.  

There also is a web site "An Appalachian Adventure" (http://www.nando.net)
that journals a "Tag-Team thru hike that several newspapers are doing.  

As others have already said, I enjoy your web site.  Has the ATC asked to
participate in the development?  Do you have plans for changes to the page.

A question to all:  Is their a monthly AT publication (magazine or newsletter)?
