Publisher's Summary

If you are planning on (or just thinking about) hiking the Appalachian Trail, this book is for you.

Planning an Appalachian Trail thru-hike is overwhelming. I know. I spent months researching every question I could think of before starting the six-month journey.

Even after all of that research, there were countless mistakes I made. This book is everything I wish I would have known before starting. Inside is a step-by-step guide to efficiently plan for a successful thru-hike. Complete with personal tips and experiences.

The goal of this guide is to help you complete the 2,185 mile long adventure, feel confident in your preparation, and have a great time every step of the way.

  • Learn how to budget wisely, save money, and not waste cash.
  • Know how to carve out six months from your family, job, and home.
  • Master a massive gear guide on everything from your spork to your tent.
  • Understand clothing, layering, and materials.
  • Hear about what life is really like on the trail.
  • Know which direction to go, when, and why.
  • Familiarize yourself with a state by state breakdown of the trail.
  • Learn how to mentally prepare for the "I-wanna-quit-days"
  • Understand the physical demands and methods to prevent injury.
  • Prepare for the nutritional needs with favorite meals and food ideas.
  • Know the real dangers on the AT.
  • (Ladies) hear from AT record-holder Heather Anderson on "Female Needs".
  • And a whole lot more....

Hope you enjoy!
