Appalachin Trail Grande
The Appalachian Trail passes through 14 states and covers some 2,200 miles from Mount Kahtadin in Maine to Springer Mountain in Georgia

Hikers experience the trail in various ways, traveling North or South, through Winter or Summer, by the Day, by a Section of the Trail or a complete Thru-Hike from end to end.

Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road,
Healthy, free, the world before me,
The long brown path before me leading wherever I choose.
Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune,
Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,
Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,
Strong and content I travel the open road.

From: Song of the Open Road by Walt Whitman

When hikers have a chance to talk – their conversations eventually lead to three subjects: food, gear and bodily functions. This blog shares those precious discussions and provides my perspective.

Be Safe,
