My sons (22 and 20) have been considering this hike. I am curious if there are places that I can send support boxes with misc items to. My hope is to send things ahead of them so that the items are available when they get to whatever the next stop is.

Hey All,

I have plans to hike the ADT in 2017. Plans of riding solo with a big dog unless anyone would like to do the thru hike with me. Can start in Cali or end in Cali, depends on the season.Please give me tips of your experience, things that came in handy to pack, or any other valuable information. Also, if anyone is generous to provide housing at anytime on the journey there would be fantastic and greatly appreciated.

Kindness and best of luck

Hi Fellow Hikers,

I recently moved to upstate New York to accomplish some new goals and explore the hiking arena of the Catskills. Charmed by the beauty of the inner and outer experience, I got closer to nature than I thought possible and contacted Lyme very sooner after my arrival. I was once bitten as a child and had no awareness of the dangers and how important precautions are before any journey. I am healing and want to pose a challenge to walk to San Francisco to raise awareness on Lyme Disease and the potential for a full recovery.

With that being said, I am looking for interested hikers to join me on this walk, and/or those who have information about the hike, camping facilities and everything in between! Thanks for your support! And good luck to those starting their journey.

For 3 1/2 years I've been virtually following the trail (Southern ADT route). I'm currently heading west "in" Illinois almost to Missouri.  I think it would really raise awareness of your trail to develop an app that would let people virtually travel your trails using their pedometer steps (Fitbit!).  You could offer the app for free but periodically ask for donations.  I thought it might be interesting to be able to buy patches signifying the sections that have been covered. It would be crazy cool to let people who actually do walk the trail to post pictures for the virtual walkers!  What do you think?
