Set the date...

I have been going back and forth and I had tentatively planned for hiking the NC leg of the BMT (thanks Sarge for suggesting that trail) in June of 2017. Well, after some research and talking to some other people on the WB forum I realized that the heat and the bugs and all that jazz might be more than I am willing to take. I looked at my calendar and I decided that December looked like as good a time as any. I will be heading west on December 16 and officially starting at Big Creek on the 17th! Prayers and encouragement appreciated! :P

Sounds fun. I do not know details. I understand that resuppy on the BMT is not as easy as the AT. There is a guy that is on youtube "Evan's Backpacking Videos" he has done the BMT a few times. you could watch his videos or contact him for some info. Good luck HFHS(Have Fun & Hike Safe).

Its a dang shame SGT Rock has gone dark (I hear he's getting married today). He had all the skinny on the BMT.

At least his Trail Guide is still up:

I am only hiking the NC leg so I will be out for 7 days or so. Shouldn't have to resupply but I have heard the same about resupply being more difficult. I'll check out the videos anyway though as imcaire there is something I can learn.

I didn't know he was getting married today. I have his trail guide with the updated info for the reroute after Fontana. His book is good. I plan to have it spiral bound before I leave as I have already managed to pull some of the pages out of the binding.
