The Appalachian Trail is 2,190 miles in length and covers multiple states.
I have a friend, Darin, who took a leave of absence from work and set off to hike the Appalachian Trail this Summer. I called him this morning and he told me that he was currently hiking across Virginia. So far he’s covered 836 miles and he’s aiming to be done in August.
He said that when he started he was averaging 10 miles a day. Now he’s doing 25 per day and he said there are lots of other hikers there on the trail.
I plan to call him again in a day or two to get more of his progress. Stay tuned.
