Hello all! This website is being created for me to be able to talk about the planning process and the eventual thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. Before and during the hike, I will be writing a blog about the AT planning process and the actual hike. Also taking place during the hike, I will be conducting interviews in hopes of discovering why people set out to hike the AT. As I come across interesting people, I will post portions of, or entire interviews, in the interview section so that any readers can be introduced to hikers that are motivating themselves to hike the 2,184.2 miles from Georgia to Maine.
