Re: Insomnia vs COVID-19 on the Appalachian Trail

Wow what an adventure MrN! I really enjoyed reading that even if it wasn't the turnout you had planned for (to say the least). As a trip report, it is top quality full of helpful advice and information. And interesting tree photos :wink: Knowing your setup, I can imagine what a ballache it must hav...

Re: Insomnia vs COVID-19 on the Appalachian Trail

Hey AJ. Great report. I feel gutted for you but you made the right call. As you said. The trail will be waiting for you. 10 years ago when I was living in DC I went out to Shenandoah fairly regularly and hiked some short sections of the AT. Good luck with the rest of the trail when you get back to ...

Re: Insomnia vs COVID-19 on the Appalachian Trail

Fantastic read, "Insomnia!" I'm gutted on your behalf that you had to cut your trip short, especially with all the planning and preparation you put into it. But as you said, the AT isn't going anywhere. I will treat you to a beer when you get to Clarke County VA on your next pass. 8) Hi L...

Re: Insomnia vs COVID-19 on the Appalachian Trail

Thank you for sharing your adventure, Insomnia, a good read. Its sad that you couldn't continue on your great adventure, but as you say, its not going anywhere and your experience will help you plan the next one. I enjoyed hearing about the friendliness of the folk you met. That seems to be somethi...

Re: Insomnia vs COVID-19 on the Appalachian Trail

Hi "Insomnia". It may not have worked out as you planned but it was a great read (little consolation I know). I hope you get back to the AT and complete it some time in the years to come. I was amazed how friendly people seem to have been and how much of a community spirit there was. Than...

Re: Insomnia vs COVID-19 on the Appalachian Trail

Day 7: Plodding On The Sunday started early. Zen drove me to a local church hall that gave a free pancake and bacon breakfast for all thru-hikers. Admittedly we sat through a short sermon, but it only lasted about three minutes and wasn't overly preachy. I'm pretty far from being a God person but I...

Insomnia vs COVID-19 on the Appalachian Trail

Everything starts with a dream. And that was me. Way back in 2016 or 2017 when I first heard of the Appalachian Trail, or the AT as it is colloquially known. The AT is a 2,193 mile (the exact amount varies) hike from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mount Katahdin, Maine, ultimately crossing through 1...
