Since Skurka has done the GWL, I started thinking, could the same sort of thing be done on the east coast. After a little research, the answer is a defiant YES. Looping together the Appalachian and The Great Eastern Trail, you get a loop. Now I have no idea how long the trip would be, or take, but the more I think about it, the more I want to do it. To my knowledge, it hasn't been done (although that really wouldn't matter to me that much). So what do you hangers out there think, should I give it a try? If I do it'll have to wait until after paramedic school is over in 2010, but thats two years to get this planned out well. So am I nuts (well I already know the answer to that) or should I start trainning and planning.
(Forgot to add, but i dont where the GET trail starts in the North, so part of the hike would be on the North Country Senic Trail)
