408.0 Moreland Gap Shelter, TN was the last mile post marker I had. I'm at mile marker 411.54 right now. Clearly in Tennessee. Looking forward to the next few mileposts because I'm familiar with the area. My brother and I usually go hiking at Holston Dam on the Watauga - around Osceola Island. Lots of fun. It's wild when they generate the power at Holston because the water levels rise so fast. Fun to watch from a safe height. Virginia's not that far away.

414.0 USFS-50 at Dennis Cove, TN
415.9 Laurel Fork Shelter, TN
422.7 US-321 Hampton, TN
424.4 Watauga Lake Shelter, TN

I am at Sugar Tree Gap now (185.6). I've been walking about .25 miles per day.

I am sure to approach Derrick Knob Shelter soon.

I am back, and actually walking again until I can get a reclining bike at my new location.

Try harder--in everything that you do!

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

Gluten free is working for me!

Welcome Lisa!! I am fairly new the to trail and walking South to North. How awesome your job must be to be on the AT!!

As for me, I can't believe my vacation turned into a month!! It wasn't really, but I have been out of town for two weeks and prior to that was the end of school and life was busy. Anyway, I am back on the trail (does this make me a section hiker? ;))

Here is the ground I covered yesterday:

Started at 29.7 Flatrock Gap
30.7 Neels Gap
31.8 Bull Gap
32.2 Levelland Mt
32.8 Swaim Gap
33.5 Rock Spring Top
34 Corbin House Stamp

Hi Lisa, welcome to the team. There's a thread called Appalachian Trail Mileposts which starts out in Georgia and ends in Maine. It has mileposts from one website on it. Here's another link to another milepost site:

I haven't used this one but the one on the AT Milepost thread is the one I've used. Please be sure to update where you are on this thread so we can all root for each other!

Hello all,

My name is Lisa. I am interested in starting a virtual hike of the Appalachian Trail. Do most people do it like the real trail walkers go - South to North? Does it matter? And where is the master guide so that you know where you are?

Please someone answer these questions so I can get walking with everyone.

Thank you kindly.

PS I actually work for a company that sits on the AT in Port Clinton PA. I walk a real part of it every day.

So on Friday I made it to:

7.6 Hawk Mtn Shelter (3260’)
8.1 Hightower Gap (2854’)
10.0 Horse Gap (2675’)
11.0 Sassafras Mtn (3340’)

And yesterday I covered:
11.6 Cooper Gap (2830’)
12.2 Justus Mtn (3225’)

Don't think I will make it anywhere close to Neels Gap, but will walk as much as I can. Hopefully in a day or two....

48.7 Blue Mountain Shelter, GA

Only made it a little over a mile down the road yesterday. Must have been dealing with blisters from my new boots! ;) At least I got to spend the night at a shelter!

7.6 Hawk Mtn Shelter (3260’)

Hoping to make it to Sassafras Mtn tonight, but I will settle for Horse Gap, they both sound interesting!!

8.1 Hightower Gap (2854’)
10.0 Horse Gap (2675’)
11.0 Sassafras Mtn (3340’)

Tell you how I did tomorrow. Enjoy the long weekend everyone!!

Here's the ground I covered yesterday:

2.5 Stover Creek Shelter
3.9 Benton Mackaye Ridge trail Joins AT
4.1 Three Forks USFA Road
4.9 Side trail to Long Creek Falls (2740’)
5.8 Logging Road

Camping on a logging road doesn't sound terribly scenic, but probably better than it sounds!

Well, I finally took the real leap off the couch and started my virtual AT hike yesterday. I have dreamed of thru hiking the AT for years and wanted to at least do a virtual hike, but for years have made excuses. Well yesterday, we finally got started. I only got in 2.8 miles, but am happy to be resting in the Stover Creek Shelter, GA.

Well as of last night I'm at 1053.07 miles so I'm less than 7 miles from the Maryland & Pennsylvania state lines. That'll mean another state will be in the books.

From 04/10/15 to 04/15/15, I have done 6.2 miles.

Here is what I've passed:

177.5 Russell Field Shelter (pic) 4360’ S,W
180.4 Spence Field Shelter (pic) 4915’ S,W
181.6 Rocky Top 5440’ None
182.2 Thunderhead Mt. 5527’ None
182.5 Beechnut Gap 4920’ W
183.2 Mineral Gap 5030’ None

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

Gluten free is working for me!
