I've been thinking about this more and more lately... I know the issues I come a cross and the battles of doing this...

I wanting to see who would be wiling to help me and support me on this great journey to complete this journey.

I am thinking of starting 2016 for this journey.

The support I am looking for is people whom would want to help send me with supplies and maybe lightly more but beyond that just some dry goods to help me along the trail.

 

I find myself wanting to do this more and more wanting to take a journey beyond anything else.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appalachian_Trail

If you live close to the trail this would be grateful.. 

But as I have said this is something looking to start possible in Feb. 2016

I would be looking for someone willing to help me get to the start of the AT.

As well as maybe someone willing to pick me up at the end of the AT.

 

This journey I feel would strengthen me in ways which I feel I need to be a better person as a spiritual journey which is something I feel 

is needed for me to grow more than what I have now.

 

This isnt for just pleasure or enjoyment but beyond all that and I know I will need support from those I trust.. this is why I turn to you all 

the family I never had when I was younger and I respect you all greatly which is why I share this thought and desire I have to do this..

 

Please contact me private message wise on here or just leave a reply.

 

Beyond that thank you for taking time to read this post.. and blessed be in and out of game.

BALOR!!!!

 

I live on the far eastern tip of Kentucky in the Appalachian Mountains.  There is a location in VA where the trail passes over I-81 ( Near Groseclose VA ) That it less than 2 hours from me.  I would be more than happy to swing by and help replenish your supplies and either camp out with you for the night or put you in a hotel room for the night ( I don't know what rules you'll be going by as far as sleeping arrangements, if you're to rough it the whole time or not. ) Let me know you're progress in this.

I live only a couple hours or so from the little bit that goes through NY.  Not sure what I can work out until way closer to you actually getting there, but I'd be happy to figure out what I can.  We've been pretty good friends some time now even if life has us on and off talking and doing gaming together.  ::chuckles::  So keep me in mind for the little NY piece of the trip.

And definitely way smarter to start at the south end and work north due to how the weather goes and so you might make before the NE freezes over.  =)

Also make sure you get in a LOT of walking now so next year you are ready to trek miles a day.

Don't mess with Mama Bear, I might hug you too tight. =D

I did the last 60 miles or so back when I was in college...I'm too old and fat to do that now :-)  It's beautiful country and the trail was quite well-marked though it's rugged terrain there.  

The Baxter State Park folks would prefer you to finish up by October 15th if possible...

I have no idea what I'm doing that far out in advance, but it's always possible I could be bird hunting up the the Baxter Park area in October....might be able to swing over and get you to civilization again.  I'll be armed and have a couple of hyped up bird dogs with me though :-)

If the timing works out I could get you down to Bangor or even Augusta where you could fly or take a bus back home.  If I'm not available, locals or tourists would probably be willing to bring you out to I-95 where you could catch a ride south as well if you're planning to hitch.  I think you have lots of options there.

We live about a half hour from the trail in mid-PA. We'd be happy to help you restock or whatever else you might need on your way through.

I am in NC, and a few hours away.

 

We have a girl who has just started this very journey and will be doing it for the summer.

When she returns, I will chat with her for some insight and see if she is willing to provide an overview ofwhat to expect and how to prepare.

@ Zoomzoom  Ya I know the trail of this is rough but I am pretty rug-git..

 

@ Helvius Depends on how much travel and weather can be done from 3 months plus.

 

General statement upon topic.

---------------------------------

I am working on more details and getting a setup once again for this long journey but figured this journey make me a better commander for the family and community in general.

 

I have been away from the game way to long but feel I've lost myself upon the nature and my artwork which isn't bad but do miss all of you.

 

Beyond the matters I hope everyone is doing well and having fun.

Hope to hear from you all more soon..

 

As well I am moving into the city of Philadelphia,Pa which is another reason I haven't been on much.

Well take care for now fellow gamers and game on. ^_^

Heya,

I'm following Appalachian Trials (your posting today, I presume?) and a number of blogs and journals at the moment as I'm planning to hike the trail NOBO, but can't do it until 2017 :(

Sadly I'm nowhere near the trail (um ...UK) so can't offer accommodation or lifts, but I hope your training and plans work out.
