Charlie takes off on Appalachian Trail March 17, 2015.

I will be using this web site, normally reserved for my hoped-for electric motorcycle cross-country run, in the sun, for a “through hike” on the Appalachian Trail, which runs 2187 miles from Georgia to Maine. My pal, Dave, and I want to do the whole thing in about 5 months. 5 million steps. I hope we make it, although usually only a small fraction of those who start a thru hike actually make it all in one year. Others do a section and come back next year to do another section or finish. Some take several years of section hikes to do the whole Trail.
Stay tuned here for updates. Or join us for a weekend or a week of hiking. We welcome the company.
