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.
