Appalachian Trail 2003 -
Entry #36 - April 28, 2003
Got going a bit after 8 AM. Had a hard day not
very motivated. Found some Trail Magic @ Allen Gap, which helped
out some. Planned to go only 14 miles or so but couldnt find
water or a flat spot to camp. Ended up going 18 miles to the Jerry
Corbin Shelter. Set up the tent, since the weather is holding out.

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.
