Entry #20 - April 11, 2003

9:03 AM - Day 13 - Today we are taking our first "zero day" and staying at the hotel. It's a pretty good price ($39 a night) and now we have all day to get things done. I am looking forward to it! We'll walk to the outfitter store, get groceries, walk downtown & to the library and also do laundry. It feels good to know we don't have to go into the woods in the rain, and that we'll be dry & warm another night! :)

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.
