    Number one tip for a successful thru-hike: Never quit on a bad day.
    lmao...good advice

    The mileage APPEARS questionable in ALL of the books.

    There was a better elevation map...I am trying to think who put that out.
    It was quite expensive.
    thanks ill look into it.

    I'll offer a bit of advice, although I haven't thru hiked before so take it worth the price you paid for it.

    If you haven't already, toughen up your feet. No need to have them tough as cow hide but if they are able to withstand the daily pounding your going to be putting them through before you start it will make your journey more pleasant.

    this made me laugh. I dunno why.
    But I'm 52.
    There was never a shortage of people to talk to...especially on the Long Trail.

    I was invisible to several....
    but I was cheered by many
