Appalachian Trail 2003 -
Entry #49 - May 14, 2003
4:10 PM - We were lazy again today. We had such
a cool campsite that when we found another one like it today, we
decided to stop. I think it's along the same river, as we're right
by the Creeper Trail again. It's another beautiful sunny day. We've
been sitting out on the rocks by the river. Only hiked for about
3 hours today - maybe 7 miles or so. Not sure how far we'll go
tomorrow, but we'll definitely be going back into town. Just depends
what road we get to.
Well, time for tea on the river rock...

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.
