It is my understanding that the folks in Georgia recommend a starting
date of no earlier than April 15 because of the possibility of severe
weather. However, I don't think many people abide by this suggestion.
Have you visited the A.T. Advice for Hikers section? There is a big file
af advice there from several different former thru-hikers. Also - you
should probably get a copy of the Thru-hikers Handbook and/or the A.T.
Companion - both of which are available from the ATC.
