I’m Eliza, a seventeen year old girl set on thru hiking the Appalachian Trail in the spring of 2018. That’s a 2,200 mile continuous hike. Right now I’m in the planning stage: reading, researching, buying gear, and even an overnight trip or two. Check in on Tuesday mornings for weekly updates, stories, and thoughts on my preparation.
To learn why I’m choosing to thru hike the Appalachian Trail (or, as it is commonly referred to, the A.T.) check out this post where I go into detail on that topic.
And if you want a bit of background on what exactly the A.T. is and how a thru hike works I’ve got you covered. This post elaborates on those questions.
