A large number of those I have followed have been successful in their endeavour. Three are still hiking. Two towards their original goal of Mt Katahdin, and one who has flip-flopped, summited Katahdin and is now is heading south to where she jumped ahead, to hopefully finish in Harpers Ferry.
A few would get off the trail and come back later, realizing that the trail is a very strong draw. It calls to you every day and wants you to walk it. I feel it myself every single day and can't wait for my next chance to see a white blaze. Whether it is one I have see and hiked by many times, or a brand new one that adds mileage to my total AT miles hiked.
So here is my latest update. Congrats to all who have finished, good job to those who had to get off, and to those who still have some miles to hike, keep on going. It is all good. Green is finished, Red is done, Black is still hiking.
