    He is in his 70s and I think he is going to try it again next year.
    The Appalachian Trail is mostly mountain's and there's alot of people that set out on thru hikes that never make it. it ware's me out just thinking about it let alone four times.
    I think you have to hike ten miles a day to make it before winter sets in and you have to start your trip in febuary, from Georgia.
    get your hiking boots out big George. :big_smile: LOL
    I'm trying to convert Model T into a catman. He's been on here looking around.

    Tom,
    That is very interesting... that guy is really something!

    I walk 3 miles a day and in the past jogged but that's about my limit. I can't imagine walking that far in the mountains on trails.
