Re: [at-l] A Section Hike Plan

     I feel very strongly that one of the divine designs of a S>N 
     throughhike is hiking north with spring, for all of the usual reasons. 
     Were I to section hike big chunks as you posit, I would time them as 
     if you were doing a single season throughhike -- the continuity, the 
     community, the whole business -- it would be perfect.

If one were to do the AT in three chuncks (2 months each), what should 
they be? What months of the year for each? Are there any special 
considerations I should take into account? I consider myself to be an 
8-12 mile a day person.
Feel free to offer advice, philosophy, etc.
