Entry #118 - August 17, 2003

8:05 PM - A great day of hiking. A beautiful sunrise on Bromley Mtn, good weather with a cool breeze, nice views and pretty easy terrain. Did about 22 miles today. Surprising, cause I never expected we'd be doing 20's in Vermont! Looks like there's some harder stuff coming up though.

We're tenting @ Greenwall Shelter. Just as we finished dinner, it started raining. No storm, though, so that's good. If we'd have known it was going to rain though we'd have stayed in the shelter. Instead we're crammed into our 1.5 person tent. Plus we had tacos for dinner, with hot peppers!! Should be a restless night - Oy!! Into Wallingford tomorrow for a mail drop.

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.
