Hey everyone, this is my first post on BPL although, I have been lurking and reading quite extensively. I plan on completing my first thru hike this summer on the Long Trail. Early June will be my starting time. I'm aware I will be bombarded by bugs but this is the only time I can fit this journey in my schedule.
This will be my first solo overnight, thru hike and ultralight expedition. I am no stranger to the outdoors, I am a well-rounded whitewater paddler, rock climber, backcountry skier and mountain biker.
I just felt I should introduce myself as I plan on using this forum as a primary resource in planning of my future trips.
By the way my name is Jaime and I live in Revelstoke, BC...for now, I kind of drift all over the place with each changing season.
