[at-l] postponing a hike

For those that are not sure if you can 'afford' a thru-hike:

Finishing a thru-hike is not the thing, starting it is.  If you have $2000, then hike that much.  If you have $1000, then hike that much.  The is not a casual experience that presents itself year after year.  This experience does not wait for you to get the money.  If you don't do it now, the chance may never be there again.  School, marraige, kids, career, health, etc.  Any of these can kill your dream.

This experience will change your life.  Don't wait.
