set up to chronicle my trails and my time on the Appalachian Trail and
different hikes so a lot of stuff here for that as well but mainly we’re here
right now to build community for the Appalachian Trail through hikers that
are out there on the trail now and the best way to do that is go down and hit
that little subscribe button hit the bell so you get notifications of our
updates once a week as well as any updates I may have for gear reviews and
my section hikes I am currently on an 8 year section hike training time until I
through hike when I’m when I retire so let’s get on with the update all right

the Appalachian Trail Conservancy nobo last week we had nineteen hundred and
fifty-one this week registered no Bo we have nineteen hundred and eighty-six
flip-floppers are a hundred and ten this week last week they were a hundred and
one so Bo we have a two hundred and twelve

at somewhere around two thousand one hundred and sixty-five the trail was
maxed out on March 1st March with 60 March 18th with 51 hikers March 28th
with 51 March 21st with 52 and once again we’ve reached another day where
folks are maxed out and is April 1st we’re looking at around 60
folks on the trail starting March 1st so getting pretty crowded out there do not
have time to check with Amicalola now to determine how many folks have stepped
off but I’m sure we’re somewhere around 900 new vloggers that we added to the
channel this week was MN hikers stairs they stepped up on March 21st far out on
the Appalachian Trail is stepping out today there are no Bo on March 24th
Facebook we added G pack and B pack and they are stepping out know both April

Charlottesville Virginia Tuesday and Wednesday is gonna be the
coldest days with those around any way around Franklin and above those
nighttime temperatures will be at or slightly below freezing and then after
that the rest of the week looks good there will be some rain starting today
so it looks like everybody up and down the trail starting tonight and through
tomorrow is probably going to get wet daytime temperature in the 1670s so the
temps will be great for hiking during the week not too not too hot not too
cold so that’s how your weather is kind of shaken checking out for everybody

the trot from the trail the Skyland drive up in the through the Shannon
doors and above the Blue Ridge parkland Virginia is closed as of a couple days
ago due to snow so they’re getting quite a bit of snow up there around the
Skyline Drive which means that in those areas of resupply is going to be a
challenge and if you’re counting on the way sides the open they are probably
closed because they can’t get resupplied AOL wanted me to let everybody know that
she’s having problems with her phone so that’s why she’s been out of contact and
she hadn’t has not updated lately but she is getting that worked out in the
next day or so so yeah well we look forward to your continued updates down

shouting out to them so I ask that you go and check out their pages check out
their lengths even if they’re not on YouTube giving them a shout out and

  1. I have moved my start date from April 1 to March 30.  Trying to avoid the big crowds.  I'm hiking for the Shriners Children's Hospital.  I'm putting a link to donate under my videos.  Thanks for all you do and God bless you and yours.

  2. Oh my gosh! Roxy (sp) is a beautiful girl! She acts like a puppy! 🐶 Thanks for the updates and as always, very informative indeed! A new hiker couple will make their entre on the AT on the 29th, but will let them know to connect with you if they wish to be updated. I believe they will be vlogging as well. Thanks! Happy trails! 🌺

  3. What you are doing is such a help to the hiker community. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this and for supporting all of the 2019 vloggers.

  4. Another great update. What’s up with Jay Hiker. He hasn’t posted a video in some time now. Just wondering if he got off trail or is having phone issues and gave up on the vlogging. Thanks!

  5. Ramdino, have you heard anything about Hiker Jay? I was following him and he disappeared. It was posted on a facebook forum he was off trail in Feb. but was going to return in Mar. Evidently he did not. Was wondering if you heard anything?
