Appalachian Trail

I’m in the process of planning a walk on the Appalachian Trail. I’m finding the process somewhat overwhelming so I want to do two things with this page:

  1. Write a clear list of the sections I need to consider.
  2. Keep track of what I’ve achieved so far to have a better sense of my progress
