Sorry I've been out in the twilight zone lately. Too much going on in life. I just returned from a month long break and I'm all out of sorts. Time zone changes, weather changes, routine changes. Too much for my body to adapt to all at once.

Welcome to our newest members. I'm sorry I haven't been around here to welcome you sooner. I checked this out and here's some information I had. I hope it helps.

http://www.atdist.com/ is the distance calculator between points on the trail

http://rhodesmill.org/thefox/maps.html is official trail maps

http://whiteblaze.net/forum/content.php is AT announcements, news & articles

I hope this helps. Also you can find videos of trail journals on YouTube

There are probably others out there but I haven't done anymore searching recently. If you find something please feel free to post it.


Start with small steps and momentum will build. Celebrate moving in the direction of increased happiness now! With a plan and persistence moving towards your goals all things are possible! ♥ From Ask-Angels.com
Much Love & Hugs, Ramona

Hi. New member here. I live in NC and have hiked just one section of the AT (Clingman's Dome south to Fontana). On my bucket list is the desire to do the entire trail - however, realistically I know I will only be able to complete in segments.
I read AWOL on the Appalachian Trail this summer which cemented this desire.
Hope to see some of you out there!

Hi,

I am new to this team. I have been doing walk/jog recently on my treadmill. I would love to be able to get out and do the trail walking but for now virtual walk/climb sounds good. But I do not know how to start this. How do I pick a trail map and how do I go about doing it. I do not know any links or maps for the trail.

Please help. I live in New york Long Island (Nassau county)

Thanks


Jyoti
