12 days late for hiking a 2100 mile trail. Maybe this is the software
engineer in me speaking, but I would say that's almost God-like to stick
so close to your original schedule.
> I'm not gonna advocate everyone posting their "schedules",
This is one thing I was wondering about. Do all the thru-hikers have
carefully worked out schedules? I tend to be the type of person who
picks up a map and says, "I think I will go here." My planning is
limited to getting general information about an area, looking over
a few maps, and getting the weather forcast. Anyone planning to do
the AT "ad hoc?" I know there are draw backs to doing things this
way, but I've been to some places I never would have gone and had
some adventures I never would of had if I planned things out more.
> As for the "DMZ"...
What exactly is the "DMZ" ?
