thanks for the tings i need ill make shure i have all of it
This is a descent list of things you could forget .. it never hurts to have one. However, I did 500 miles of the AT last year and hiked with lots of successful Thru's. Go ahead and scratch map and compass off that list, just bring the AT guide book instead. You can also scratch off the Bounce box unless you have special food you want or unless you just have noone anywhere that will help you in an emergency ( eg. ripped /lost tent ) Also, scratch the insect repellent and anything extra like the sun hat(the green tunnel) and the stuff sackS .. you only need something to keep your sleeping bag dry and something to hang your food in ( you can use the same dry sack for both but swapping will be a pain)
Bring gloves if you want them .. your socks will be NASTY! ( both pair)
An excellent resource for anyone of you who will be hiking is the Appalachian trail Class of 2013 group on Facebook. Don't be afraid to join the 2012 group as well to see what people posted last year.
Good luck - remember the AT isn't just a trail, its a way of life and it begins and ends way before and way after your time in the woods.
"Two pairs of socks, one doubling as mittens"? Anyone who has long-distance hiked before knows there's little chance you'll be wearing those bad boys on your hands... If you want mittens or gloves, bring mittens or gloves, and bring three pairs of socks: two to rotate (in case one pair needs to dry) and one for bed only. When packing for something like this, be careful thinking you'll get too creative with your gear, cause it probably either won't work or won't happen.
Can anyone tell me what the point of this list is? Anyone that is even contemplating a thru-hike should be able to come up with a comparable list on their own and could use this to supplement theirs in case they might have overlooked something. The way the author portrays this list is so someone can grab it and go, but they fail to give any mention any sort of experience, thought, planning, etc. that goes along with a thru-hike.

I may be dumb for this, but I plan on doing a Thru-hike starting from South florida, near Ft lauderdale/Orlando. And am planning on starting this hike in early november. I might have 1 or two others doing this trip with me, so if anyone else would care to join or comment. Please do.

I am 34/M experienced hiker planning a thru-hike in March 2013 going north to Maine. This is my first thru. If anyone is interested in joining, email me firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to my getting married in September 2013, I am not planning on taking alot of time to stop in any 1 area. You would need to be able to hike a regular distance of 20+ miles a day with your pack and equipment on you already. Yeah, I know terrain plays apart in daily distances...
