Planning a Summer Thru Hike (updated 2010)

Flashback: It's early on the morning of July 21, 2003, and Rough and Tumble (that's us) have hiked up the Pine Cobble and Appalachian Trails from Williamstown, Massachusetts. We're standing at the Long Trail Southern Terminus sign on the Vermont-Massachusetts border, ready to start our thru hike. All the planning is complete, drop boxes distributed, gear selected and practiced with, and conditioning hikes finished. With great anticipation and a touch of trepidation, we're about to take our first steps on the Long Trail on our way to the Canadian border.
You can take advantage of some of our experiences before starting your own end-to-end by listening to our podcast "Planning a Summer Thru Hike of the Long Trail" at longtrailpodcast.com . Don't forget your camera ... and have a great hike!
