I've been lurking around this mailing list for a while, not wanting to
write anything until I had given my notice at work. Today was the big
day, so I can go public. My wife Tara and I will be starting a thru hike
the first week of May. I can't start any earlier because I'm finishing
up a part time masters degree. This brings up a few questions.
Will there be any reasonable chance of finishing a traditional GA -> ME
thru hike if we start around 5/5? If so, will it have to be rushed to a
If we can't hike straight through what might be some of our other
alternatives? We thought about a flip-flop, but we've talked to another
couple who finished a thru hike 10 years ago and they said it might be
quite a disappointment if you don't complete a hike at Katahdin.
Will there be others starting around this time, or will we be with only
day hikers and weekend hikers?
I'm sure this is only a start to the many questions I have. I'll stop
here for now.
Thanks in advance,
Dave and Tara Guild
