    AT Thru - 2012

    Anyone planning on being on the AT next season?

    I've got an early start planned for mid-February next year.

    Whiteblaze is probably a better venue for this question.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Why? Can't we ask if people from this forum will be hiking on the AT next year? Some people from this forum don't like the atmosphere over there, compared to over here. This is a community for hammock hangers, not AT Enthusiasts. If the OP wanted to know what AT Enthusiasts were going to be hiking the AT next year, they should try Whiteblaze.

    My wife and I are giving serious thought to it....myself more than her...but her interest is piqued. I'm at the point where if she doesn't go...she would support my efforts. We're both retired so we have the time. I'm considering hiking a month of it this summer so I could start later in the season next year...or make it possible to hike less miles per day. Lots of options and things to think about between now and then.

    I plan to start in GA early March 2012, using a hammock for shelter.

    The AT and Hammocks

    @dipatlo My girlfriend and I (and our two dogs) are planning on hiking the trail next summer. We're not starting till April though so we probably won't get to meet.

    We're actually pretty new to the hammock camping world (new enough that we don't even own any yet), but we want to try them out this summer and see how it goes. If it's as good as it sounds then we won't be turning back and we'll be hitting the AT next summer with our awesome hammocks! We're looking at going with the WBBB and a top quilt and most likely CCF pads (unless there's a miracle and money falls from the sky so we can get under-quilts). Haven't decided on the tarps yet, but again as cheap and as light as we can go works for us. Maybe the Edge tarp from Warbonnet since they give you a pretty decent package deal. In the meant time any input seems like good input so I'm all ears.

    @Cannibal - Yeah, I know the weather can be super craptastic that time of year, but unfortunately, that's our down time at work so it's the most feasible scheduling wise. I've only got a couple more things to buy/make to complete my kit, but I'm looking at a base weight of around 13 or 14 pounds. I'll post a gear list later. I have a few shake down hikes planned for the cooler months.

    As far as the WBBB goes, well, I pretty much refuse to give it up.
