Hi there,
A year I give some details of the planned trip-a trip of at least two weeks in the White Mountains. This area is suitable for those looking to do a trek in the northeastern United States, and has some experience in.
A convenient thing that simply allow to go on the route of the Appalachian Trail that is maintained and well marked, use shlterim along the way, and generally meeting people periodically.

Getting there &amp; away you can travel from New York to Boston (the cheapest bus), and Boston has buses to towns in New Hampshire. I drove to town Hannover HANOVER and started away. Those who want to go directly to the White Mountains, you can take a bus to LINCOLN to start hiking in franconia NOTCH to PINKHAM notch or bus right at the foot of Mount Washington.

Track: the White mountains themselves are part of the relatively high difficulty level. There are sections of climbing rocks, changeable weather, and Ridge tops can be a very impressive (and very dangerous winter days). There is a lot to climb and descend, not always so comfortable space route Therefore, a person who is not in shape, I suggest may not start right in the White Mountains, but shortly before, relatively mild, warm up your muscles and get your body in shape.
So I started in Hannover, which is on the Appalachian Trail but a week walk from the beginning of the White Mountains.
This is not particularly impressive, but it is also and especially exposed to the atmosphere of the trail, and katneri side of New Hampshire. At Hanover College has named דארת'מות there's room for someone who goes for.
Along the trail to the White Mountains has a possible to sleep where lters.
In this section there are not many places where the view opens, and she walks in a forest.
After four days I felt that I had enough and wanted to go straight to the White Mountains, then came to the road and hitchhiked into town, which is at the very beginning of the White Mountains.

In town you can also stock up on food and travel equipment if missing. There's a hostel for bikers called CHET's PLACE is really cool (but still smells like the hostel for bikers), shower and do laundry, in Exchange for a donation as modest.

From there you can catch a taxi or take a termm to the trailhead in franconia notch. This is one of the most beautiful scenes along the ridge.
Also we reserve to see bond are very beautiful cliffes

You can hike 3 days or so until you get to the road, Center of AMC. From there it is possible to improve a little and sleep in a campground in Mount Washington, and the next day to go to the mountain. On the Summit there is a visitors center that can be filled with water and buy some snacks or food. Mount Washington is the highest mountain in the Eastern United States (2000-something yards, still not the best in the world) and the footpath also beautiful Ridge.

This can be done (even take a ride) GORHAM town there too there are some relatively cheap hostels and early bus back to Boston.

Weather and travel time-traveled in the Middle ptambr, and cold at night. Need a tent and a good dry straw and spare clothing and sportswear. It's not that I don't like. The very changeable weather and daylight can be. You should be prepared for this mentally and in terms of equipment.
If the weather's not allowed not allowed not allowed to climb on the ridge of the White Mountains! It can be a hazard. Crazy winds there, and Mount Washington can be storms. Don't take the risk, there are quite a few people who have been killed on Mount Washington because they have the wrong time. I waited two days in the town of Lincoln until the skies cleared. It's also okay to wait in "hostel. You don't want to take the risk. Towards the end of September is already the end of the season, especially consider the aiikrim ה"זנב up North. In autovr huts may be closing, ask about it. However, you should watch the weather before mine were very simple in that respect.

-Water water everywhere, usually marked on maps where there are streams. Need to clear the water purification drops can be bought at stores in the u.s. food tours have to calculate how many days need to get to the next town. You should take things with as much calories, that have to carry food for 4 more days. A good solution in this area-not drying tortillas, along with local cheeses, not so fast, that peanut butter, energy bars, hot sneakers, attorneys. Try to take things ripen faster, to save gas.

Maps and information-tag at the end of all kinds of links to sites that were used. Maps and books can be purchased in many places, but find them safe places like rims stores in NYC or Boston. Maps marked another except tracks the Appalachian Trail.

-Equipment
Beyond the usual equipment, winter equipment. Should a minimum weight (of course).

Along the way-really depends on how it's done. You can segment it in various forms, and cut any points. So it's up to you. In general you should pay attention to everything it says by e-mail rather than miles, and it can be confusing. A mile is 1.6 km, so always consider how that if it McKim and feasible. First days should not go more than 10 miles. The Government also sometimes problematic and much slower, so consider this when planning your day.

To sum up-especially the u.s.a. deserves to do a trek, I'd advise him to spend a little bit more effort and reach the Western United States there are large parks, more stable weather and scenery and less wooded.
White Mountain range is impressive and as very high mountains to the West.
But it has its charms, especially during casting (September-October), and for those who are on the East Coast and like to travel, this is pretty amazing.

About 10 Israelis leave for each year and if you start in April you will meet them.
And anyway, apalazim is the most popular for long. No one goes there alone.
Black Friday has a wonderful reality. You can find socks, a soft, lightweight outerwear item and.
If you have an address in the Eastern USA to send things out so you can collect them AT the exit to a rope.
If you build on a ship to earth so significantly decreases attractiveness

Why so little? That's a stick you in the forest for 4-6 months and like nothing for Israel. It is far from standard trip after laiachshb.
Almost every day is raining and wet shoes are routine. 3500 start him every year and about 10 percent are done. Barely 1% considered "purists" answered – went all of the path.
There are claims that a higher percentage of graduates and 30%, but that includes a lot of false reports from those who have done half a hitchhiking or skipped sections.
No one can promise you ten Israelis? These are more or less the size of orders in recent years, but can be more or less. What is certain is that you meet any of them.
When talking about the walk AT going on a walk from South to North. But there is also a minority who chooses to start and finish. It's a lot harder because you can't start in spring.

Inflatable mattress of course duty. It is important to focus on lightweight gear. Worth every ounce and dollar.
Suggest you go through the equipment list equipment Forum. I recommend, my personal experience, so that you have at least half a day n ' store REI Atlanta (away asking the guy who runs the hostel at DOLUNUGE to take going up and in the morning he bounce you to the trailhead)
Find out what's on their website, some time prior to your trip, all waiting for you at the store. I shop there all the precious things: a mattress, camping, Water Purifier, rain gear, dlkiia.
I would buy the shoes and socks are professionalism, pants and shirts.

The rain gear, tent, I'd better see if not buy ultra Lite small manufacturers, which rely on the supply of REI. Also cooking system (JetBoil?).
Mattress-REI offer quite the most known companies.

Amnon, where and what the ten Israelis do the Appalachian spring every year?
Do you mean to thru hike or sections of the trail?

It's based on my heel in various forums. I see every year some plan for exit and I just talking about thru hike
I have no idea how many of them survived. Israelis tend not to register at arfers. Noam recorded at the time but he was an exception.

Throughout the thread that claim cost AT significant social experience empowers travelers — in many of her experience gives the PCT eg.

I'd love to learn:


Is the gap in social experience stems from the fundamental difference in the two properties orbitals? Maybe with the time AT a social and gregarious than perceived, and therefore seeking this experience rise themselves?

And maybe some numbers gap — such as amount of hikers/-responsible for elasticity and difference


Whether the reason for differences caused by the travellers AT staying in sheds (so I understand), and the PCT year travelers probably in his tent?


Maybe the track they affect? I was impressed that the PCT more varied, perhaps its most rewarding, while the AT passes the olchio green ב"מנהרות, and the fog often conceals the revealed landscape. Does social experience develops the AT because the track itself less rewarding?

Thanks to respondents.

Giora you stood right on most things.
PCT is a bill he opposed view AT virtually any forest trail. But the fundamental difference that in itself is not the main factor in the experience AT social
I appointed five main factors that make AT what he social level
1) the amount of people that start a continuous route each season (3000-4000) in April or early May. Which means that every day we go tens or even hundreds of people.
Shared accommodation) in the decisive difference-beyond the amount of people. Everyone huddled at night in same cell surface. Cook, talk, bathe. All together. As spontaneous commune.
3) using ב"שמות and path in rgisteri of shlterim. Trail Names that genius that creates curiosity to know who's behind the personae and write names in rgisteri multiplies the curiosity
4) anywhere in the world so many trail angels like AT. Love of a simple man who embraces over there. There is also a trail angels in PCT and a lot, but it's nothing compared to AT.
5) for a controlled substance. There is constant surveillance after. Reports go to the control center a arfers registration boxes at various points and rangrim (Bridget raners) control sections.
As for picking up a all and remember you in Atlanta and forest for weeks and months there is a significant landscape changes, it's no wonder that most attention directed to human beauty.

Tilapia, thanks a lot.
Is there any difference in either in the properties? Maybe cut different ages Or level of experience? If I misunderstood the number exported to AT and preferences later to PCT, significantly higher than the PCT the Alumni preferences later to AT. Perhaps less experienced travelers feel safer in a group?

I don't know if there is a significant difference in the travellers sit AT but I reckon there are more older travelers who try to do everything.

Undoubtedly the AT it as default for first and only long later in the PCT. At-basic and supplementary hiilit PCT.
Both of the majority of the American people is. See the rest of the world, most Germans are AT.
BTW, there is another important factor that I forgot and makes you popular AT and is very convenient in management. The supply points for out almost on a daily basis.

Why do you want to start?
I hope you have decided on the date for the Kickoff of March.
ATKO of 2015 is on March 6-8, but that doesn't mean it's start date in the Trek.
March is too cold and too hot heavy equipment requires Optimum start is from mid-April.
It also syncs with the best Trail Days in Damascus in mid-May.
In short .... What were your considerations to start in March before.

Planning to go for on 15 March, the knowledge I have now is a book I'm AWOL ON THE APPALACHIAN TRAIL reader where one says he wants to start and finish last, so he started at 1.1.2003 and in the middle of the track in one of the hostels and worked for a nice (replaced shingles, roof). From what I gather from the book, to begin in late April and begin before March is frozen. So I've been thinking about 15th March. If I can start in then I'd start 1.1.2015, but this visa for six months and first three months it will be snowy. Never traveled in the snow so it takes me out of the area. Yes, push me out as soon as possible. I didn't change my mind at the last minute, don't get cold feet, now all the conditions are suitable.

Harpers Ferry is in the middle of the track after 1,000 miles. From mid-April to mid-May this month. It seems difficult to go 1,000 miles per month. 750 miles per month sounds better.

I didn't know about the kick off of Appalachia, so thanks for my renewed despite not what you meant, as it seems now, get after the festive ceremony. Read about it here http://www.atko.info
