- Yes, the Appalachian Trail DOES seem to be an achievement to do.
Unless I am wrong, it does also tend to be something that is so draining that Steve might not be using his own radio gear on this kind of hike - reserving activity for less straining hike closer to home?
As an aside, I have hiked some some small parts of the AT. It DOES interest me and I do hope to do a good part of it after I retire from the first career.
I've read a number of books on doing the AT - a blind fellow with his guide dog; Bill Bryson's book (he was HARDLY prepared for it); Dennis Blanchard's book (300 Zeroes) on his hike/ham radio (he had to stop for a while and do recuperative heart surgery and then return to the AT healthier and lighter).
Up hereabouts we have the Bruce Trail... which is 560 miles long
and is a UN Bioheritage Site.
I hike it quite a bit in sections, but usually only day hikes for now and with the dogs and 8 year old niece and wife, so no ham radio. But I will be trying out some hiking/SOTA ideas for future endeavours this summer and might us the Bruce Trail for some of the testing.
enjoy and be safe outdoors
