Appalachian Trail 2003 -
Entry #41 - May 4, 2003
8:30 PM Last night was somewhat of a disaster.
Slept in the shelter with Mountain Butterfly, Mr. Magoo & Lion
King. Actually, Lion King decided to sleep under the stars next
to the shelter & fire. Right away, Mr. Magoo started snoring
like crazy. Everyones heard a lot of snoring our here, but
this guy sounded like a grizzly with sleep apnea or something.
Andy & I put our headphones in to try to shut it out some.
Sometime in the middle of the night it started raining and Lion
King came into the shelter. He was having a fit over the snoring
- cussing and pounding on the platform every time the guy breathed.
We could have slept with the snoring, but not the carrying on.
Hes actually a nice guy, though.

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.
