Experiences On The AT

Appalachian Services has temporarily suspended its hiker support services due to the death of an immediate family member who was integral to its proper operation.  In the interim we are attempting to complete a book we began compiling in 2014 chronicling hiker experiences on, and around, the Appalachian Trail.  For more information regarding this book, and/or to submit information regarding your own experiences on the AT, please go to https://TalesFromTheAT.wordpress.com.

Hikers behaving badly: Appalachian Trail partying raises ire

It’s a shame when hikers behavior on the AT is so bad it makes national news, but it’s even worse when this behavior is causing Baxter State Park officials and ATC administration to consider changing the end point from Katahdin to another location thus shortening the trail.  😦 Here’s a link to the full story as reported by Associated Press’ Alanna Durkin on 30AUG2015 and posted on Yahoo!© https://www.yahoo.com/movies/s/hikers-behaving-badly-appalachian-trail-partying-raises-ire-134417126.html

Inside A Walk in the Woods

Another great articles from Mountain Crossings At Neel Gap. 🙂

As many fans of the Appalachian Trail are already aware, the release of Bill Bryson’s popular book A Walk in the Woods is just around the corner. Labor Day marks the premiere of the movie adaptation of one of the most well known books written about the AT. Though Bryson did not successfully thru hike the Appalachian Trail, in his book he excellently captured the spirit of the trail and the lives of thru hikers in a most hilarious way. In the making of the movie, the cast and crew went to great lengths to pay the proper homage and to bring to light those who keep the spirit of the AT bright and shining. Many iconic stops along the Appalachian Trail were used as filming locations including Amicaloa Lodge and Springer Mountain. Last summer, well over a year ago, the crew came up to Neel Gap to film the main…

How to Eat Well on Trail

This is a subject I was going to address over the winter for new hikers starting next season, however as the saying goes, “Why re-invent the wheel?” I hope you enjoy this very informative and well written post by Mountain Crossings At Neel Gap. 🙂

Mountain Crossings at Neel Gap

When you are spending an entire day transporting everything you need to survive up and over mountains, food becomes amplified in importance. It is no longer just three meals a day;  it is the gasoline that fuels us forward; it is a currency; it is a reward as precious as a pot of gold for a long, hard day’s work! Thankfully for backpackers, you can’t over eat on the trail and, while some foods will take you farther than others, “unhealthy” foods hardly exist. If it has calories, you should eat it. The trick is maintaining enough creativity to keep you munching despite the limitations of a full kitchen. When on trail, there is no wrong way to eat. At the same time, it can be hard to get it right. The key is to simply keep eating!!

Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day they say. This is even more true…
