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. Everyone’s 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. He’s 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.
