Can't imagine my wife would ever want to do it (she's not the outdoorsy type). Don't think I could do it alone though. Still always wishing....
Evening Dread, I am an avid hiker and belong to a couple of different hiking clubs. In the summer, I hike about three days a week all over the mountains of North Carolina. I have a couple of friends who have done the AT as a thru hike and others as section hikers. In fact, one friend in her 60's, finished the AT as a section hiker this summer finishing up the last 200 miles. As much as I love hiking, I really love a hot shower and a cozy bed after a long day hiking. You might enjoy the book "A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson.
