300+ Envelopes of Emergen-C
The good people at Emergen-C are sponsoring my hike. They have provided me with a whole lot of Emergen-C and stickers. I would love to share some with you. The first three people to ask me questions about my hike in the comments below that are not in the FAQ section, will a sample pack of Emergen-C and a few stickers. I'll answer them in an upcoming blog. This was the first photo I took with my new camera!

**Persons that won the facebook contest are not eligible, sorry!**

UPDATE 2.21.12 :: Contest is not closed, questions should be up soon.

  1. So, realistically, what do you think your chances of reaching Katahdin are? This ain't no walk in the woods, despite what Bryson claims! =)

  2. I thru-hiked in 2003. My address isn't a big secret--you can find me at PO Box 16131, Seattle, WA 98116. My online adventures can be found at http://www.ryansatotalgoober.com/adventures/appalachiantrail.html if you're interested in reading any of them.

    When I started the hike, I liked to think my chances of making it to the end would be better than 80%, but reading about the failure rate, I seriously wondered if that was too optimistic. But by golly, I made it! =) Once I had that experience under my belt, I put my chances of success at better than 95% for future hikes. By golly, I know I can do thru-hikes now! =) But still, there's always that chance of injury or hardship that forces you off the trail no matter how well prepared you were physically or mentally. *shrug*

  3. Are you cutting your hair for your hike? this is a legit question. Cause if its going to be hot during your hike then you should buzz that shit. :D -Katie Nava

    1. Thanks Katie! You'll receive your sample pack from me personally on Saturday.

      Ryan, I've read both your AT & PCT hiking blogs and I enjoyed them both! You bring up some great points.

  4. Have you planned ahead on where you will be stocking up on supplies and what is the average weight of your backpack you will carry during the hike?
