Title: the littler mountains...Appalachian trail
Post by: peak_sneak on Jan 23 2005, 11:37
Hey all,

I am getting off the 'big mountain' topic here and wanted to start a new topic about the Appalachian trail from Georgia to Maine. Something besides the 7 summits that I had in mind. I have read a few articles about it and its sounds great. I have also read a book written by Bill Bryson and his experience on the trail entitled A Walk in the Woods. It is written very well and he shares his experience with great humour, there are many passages that I am sure everyone can relate to. It is quite easy to read, I think I read in 2 or 3 days and recommend it. Has anyone here done it and would like to share experiences and good advice? Or anyone interested in trying it out?
