Note Before Reading
Welcome to our A.T. guide. This was written to help people cut through the clutter and ambiguous descriptions encountered in the many guides and word-of-mouth experiences on a thru-hike. Please take this information with a grain of salt. It is our opinion, which may be different from yours.We will not be going into depth about the terrain of each state. There is plenty of that already out there. Besides terrain does not really matter; you either hike through it or you quit. This is mainly a description of towns in relation to resupply and lodging/camping. Only the things we did are included. We will not cover all the possibilities available in each town visited. We can only describe what we encountered, on whatever day, with whoever happened to be there. Our intention is not to discredit or discourage you from going somewhere and giving somebody your business. This guide is our opinion based on our hiking style, standards, and experience. Keep in mind, we hiked NOBO in 2018. Things can and do change. We will not be covering specific gear in this guide. That will be a post on its own. We will cover things like having the right gear in specific weather conditions but not what specific brand we used.
