Appalachian Trail Hike

Region: South Central - East Activity Type: Backpacking Place: Lexington or Waynesboro , VA

I am proposing a 7 day event. Two (2) days for travel, 1 day to get to the Trail and 1 day to get home from the Trail, and 5 days of hiking and backpacking on the Appalachian Trail. The only costs should be travel expenses to and from the Trail; maybe a night or 2 of hotel/hostel stays if traveling long distance from home to and from the Trail; food for 5 days of backpacking and any food during travels. You should have backpacking gear to sustain a 5 day hike. I hiked 810 miles on the Appalachian Trail in 2019 so I have some extended knowledge and experience.

I'm in NC and hike on the AT regularly - however at 72 I no longer have any desire to sleep outside - I'm happy to do 10, 12, 15 miles, then I want real food, a real bed, a real shower and breakfast, then glad to do it all over again on another section of trail. So if there is the possibility of joining a day or 2 or 3, would love to - Lexington is not that far from Hickory NC - Waynesboro is a bit further but both are easy to get to - depending on where you are hiking on the AT would determine

I’d be interested. Need to complete that section. My best times to go would be between April 2 and 13.
