First of all welcome, tanino anymore for the Appalachian Trail. There are plenty of people who did the same.

It's best to enter the TRAILFORUMS website or WHITEBLAZE.

The debate is old fashioned, from North to South or vice versa. Most do from South to North.

South starting from mid March to mid-April to reach ktadin before the snow.

North start at the end of winter and go south to Springer has enough time because the winter not haunting you.

That is no problem to start sort only hot sweats in August. The problem you might reach c in winter, and it's still February request.

Now what about fitness equipment Browse the Forum there was lots and lots of information. You can call me at first and more 0522791953 would love to know as Ronnie Amir, Michal, Assaf, Noam, Amnon.

Really nice that someone finally asks us on the Appalachian Trail. It gives us the elders apalch veterans Forum purpose.

Certainly we can start in Maine in mid-August but not recommended. Although the vast majority of the people who did the South (including I) pledge to walk southward madding crowd better reasons to walk North (much less, much less, much better views during and after the fall, and a lot less people-which is also the main disadvantage of the South), mid-August is a little too late unless you expect to be gone Super fast.  Most of the South will start before August, when their shashaipa reach Springer before the end of December.  It's certainly possible. If you start late August 1 your chance to atzatvat other travelers much lower, because some people who start so they usually Super fast and a little less friendly (they're there to do for four months, not because of the friendly).   Do you really want to be with other tiiilim (which as stated is possible if you begin on August 1 or a little before). Much more fun to be around other travelers-walk alone is a fun week, but after 3 months alone on the path you start but needs.

Roy.

Just a tip before you get advice from Ronnie:

1. consider if you want to get advice from someone you know who broke the record the following for the longest hiking trail: (more than eight months, no Rooney?)

The longest stay in "hostel (14 days without his hammock)

At least the longest showers. (People identified Rooney according to what in his DNA and scent times)

2. I hope you don't end up like the ROI before we had with some high pretensions. (Do you have a naked picture or something to prove that?)

3. leave the Appalachian spring, as tells us precious met in late August in the kind of path (skiicomish), which is how he ended up in Maine AT the flying to Canada to start the PCT: "now I realize what a waste of time it on AT, I did it before."

But anyway, you are welcome to contact-052-5456082, a little more sane perspective on the whole thing (it's all relative, of course).

The guy wrote three rows, three of us rushing to give him advice and give him our phone number.  How said "more than calf wants to suckle the cow wants to breastfeed.

Roy-really great dilemma is not when to start the apalch, but who to call to ask for advice. Try to be diplomatic. Giving tips are of the old and new אפלאצ'ים walkers is the purpose of our existence here in the Forum and as you noticed, already started to fight with me about who gets the call.

Anyway [which tip is 1] for only long to start in August and hope to finish is the Appalachian mountains, so the PCT, although it is rather pretty.

Oh, and don't forget to send your pictures to prove you're serious as she asked. Datia, datia, but horny.

Well I have to treat
From North to South. Also because it is against the movement. Although at first the most fun, and when it starts to get old, meet every night millions of people that come from the South.

Secondly, for beautiful, but of course there are many sections that just closed at the distances that a really long. So if you have a man at the end can only do excerpts or so-called SECTION HICKING e.g. just the WHITES the 100 MILES and BLUE RIDGE WILDERNESS and SHANANDOA SMOCKIES or. Or any other area that looks cool. The disadvantage is to get each time the edge advantage is not tired of sunsets and allow each time to visit cities like Boston and some other hour drive WHITES and assigns direct bus.

Sometimes you want to go and meet people and keep in touch and take shape. It's nice to meet new people every day but sometimes looking for some confidence and acquaintances.

October is too late for all the apalch, unless you are super fast aalchim you can do all winter for three months.  Kthdin closes in mid-October (although there are ways around it), but the big problem if you begin in October will still be in New England in November, when a snow storm begins and serious ice iaito, you significantly, and even risk your life if you do. People (including me) did the trail in winter, but the snow and the cold and loneliness make the experience much more difficult.

If you want to start in October (which is my favorite month for), it's better to start South of New England, for example, arfers (half way) and go south, then you can rest a bit before winter and usually have a very good chance to connect with other travelers trying to reach Springer before Christmas holiday. The other half of the route can be done in spring or at any other time.  Believe me, a lot less fun to spend six months on the trail than you think.

Ronnie

P.s.  Where in the USA?

I don't really understand if you intend to do for more than six months (it took me 9.5 months to do it in the Winter 2002-2003 and my friends took 8.5 and 9 2005-2006). Keep in mind that if you're not that fanatic for all weather take you longer in winter, though the days shorter, but mostly because of ice storms and blizzards in December later that you slow down (depending on the year).   You lock on to do end-to-end path? There are actually a lot of sense to start in New York.

This long.  Start the path in New York in September. There are few places in New York where the trail is very accessible by public transport including one place is commuter rail one of New York City.  If you go south, you also have a very high chance to join the moves started in Maine at the beginning of August and were trying to reach Springer by the end of December, even the autumn (casting in season for), and you have a good chance to avoid most snow (except for a short section but potentially problematic Smokey's).   The biggest advantage is that if you decide to quit after a few weeks, still not too far from home. Statistically your chances of reaching to the Springer is less than 50% and maybe even significantly less than 50 percent. If you go through two and a half seasons Springer (the end of the summer, fall and winter) which will make for much more interesting than most moves north. In addition prevents insects, and crowds.

C) one of the first benefits in New York is that it was a relatively easy thing (relative to apalch, yet tough compared to other trails), no major characters, and the ability to tispok every few days if you're going too slow.  So you don't have to start in good shape.

) If you start in New York in September no longer need the basic equipment (launched changed 3 seasons). The cold weather will come gradually and can buy more equipment for (even through the mail) that decide that suits you and equipment comparison look at others.

C) it all depends on how you are pampered and you want to get.  Definitely keep a budget of $ 10 per day assuming your equipment well enough, and that you have a good self-discipline with money (really not easy especially in crappy weather, when all you want is a roof). A budget of $ 20 will give you a higher level of pampering.  Remember that bstav and in winter much of hostelim closed, so you have less to spend money. On the other hand if you have a warm bed every week, you will have fewer people to share them in a motel room and therefore potential if you like amenities, cost you more.

A few more questions.
I was supposed to meet a certain road route or has only one type {white} and I'm supposed to flow?

Thermal clothing required? Or other hot clothing {introduction}

Need a tent and a few seasons or always have lterim?

Release date will probably be in early Aug39133.9328703704 lrrp

It's almost impossible to get lost over time on the apalch. However, map and even a free roadmap outlined for each country will be useful in case of an emergency, if you need to leave the trail and search for ethics and ideals.  You want to know which side of the road you should go down.

If you are starting in October will not have the warm month of September to learn and you have to start with warm clothing.  Just buy a few more layers.  You have around the House in New Jersey, the only physical store in the u.s. of CAMPMOR.  Find all the equipment you need and at great rates. Find all the equipment in their Web site, but because of the close you can see it.  Register gear you want before you buy so we can slay him (it's our favorite hobby here in the Forum).

There are almost always empty or lterim and they always have a place in fall and winter. Tent., mainly for security reasons, because sometimes 10 miles between lterim in winter can be too far.  Another advantage is that winter most shlterim completely empty (only you) then you can set up your tent in the "hostel and enjoy all the worlds.  To do this you will need a tent that stands on its own (FREE STANDING) is heavier, because of course you can't stick pegs of hardwood floors "hostel.  Again, you can buy one in campmor.  In principle you can (which is what I did) take only Tharp as backup. Much easier but tricky and potentially dangerous at low temperatures without shelter.

Your late start means that you will race against winter. You go south, winter. Whether ice and snow storms that get you and your lucky iaito depending on the weather.  Anyway you might as well start in this case at arfers (it's just Washington bus and commuter rail away = $ 30 from New York City). Also not to be alone, and you have good chances to finish the ice storms that certain bachorfim at the end of December (in 2002 and 2004) cover for the ice and make it almost impassable for several days or weeks. In January, the lower temperature, but ice storms, PhD, slowing only snow you less.

I hope that none of this scares you. Except for solitude (depending on timing) I, who I know and who did the trail in both winter and summer still prefer to go to the December apalch than to do it in the heat and humidity of July. More challenging trail in winter, but also much more rewarding.

Last September I started writing in another link here on what to do in a very low temperature. It probably won't be relevant guy who view the question, but it will be very relevant for you if you really intend to do apalch in December.
