I have contacts as well, and although I haven't been on the AT, I have
been on extended trips with them and I've never had a problem.  All I
can say is just make sure your hands are clean.  I personally would be
driven crazy wearing glasses.  Now that they have the new all-in-one
solutions, it should cut back on weight and amount of contact stuff
that you'd have to bring... just resupplying them whenever you need
it.  I would think deciding on bringing them or not would be based
more on your ability to keep your eyes happy and clean.
