Entry #5 - March 21, 2003

Well, it's Friday, the day before we move, and I feel like we don't have anything done!!! We still have to plan and get together all of our mail drops, and we have tons of running around to do today!!! The more I start thinking about it right now, the more I am starting to feel queasy. It's 8:10 AM - time is ticking away, and Andy's still sleeping! Looks like last night was a bad idea. We ended up going out for dinner with some friends. It felt good to blow off some steam, I guess, but we should have been home getting ready!!! I better go wake up Andy. We have tons to do. No time to even worry about the actual Trail, with so much other stuff to do!!!

Preparing to Hike the Appalachian Trail?

Commonly used guides by A.T. thru-hikers include the Appalachian Trail Guides (published by the Appalachian Trail Conference), the Appalachian Trail Thru-Hiker's Companion, and the Appalachian Trail Data Book. The guide series includes a guide for each section, along with a series of trail maps. The Thru-Hiker's Companion has helpful info on towns, shelters, and water. The Data Book has basic distance info for road crossings, shelters, and other features. All are excellent tools for use during a long distance hike.
