This year, I plan to hike my first section of the Appalachian Trail, with the ultimate goal being to complete the entire trail.

The first section will be a southbound hike, from Kent, CT to High Point State Park in New Jersey. My hiking partner, Dave (aka Young Dave) and I plan to cover approximately 120 miles in 8 days, averaging 12-15 miles per day.

In subsequent posts, I will cover our itinerary.
