Hiking Trail Journals
Appalachian Trail 2003 -
Entry #110 - August 7, 2003
9:05 PM - Did 16 or 17 miles today, to Goose
Pond Cabin. The hiking was ok, and I was in a better mood than
I have been lately. The cabin we're staying at is run by the AMC.
There's a porch downstairs with gas oven, fireplace, table, and
bunks upstairs. Very Nice! I guess we get pancakes in the morning
too! No rain today, but the next days or week are supposed to suck.

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.
