    @Florian, etc. I've got an idea and I wanted to run it past you all to gain insight. Right now I volunteer in a Veterans' Mentor Court where we help vets detained (not necessarily arrested) by police for drugs and alcohol issues. Anyway, I'm keen to create an Appalachian Trail program for the vets able & willing to hike part or all of the AT. My start date is 2019. I've got a judge keen for me to go forward with it.

    Would any of you be interested in such an event? Any and all suggestions are welcome. I've got one combat vet interested so far. Also, should I be starting a new thread with this topic? lol

    I definitely think you could start a new topic and gain quite a bit of feedback from quite a few followers. I'm not too familiar with the AT, but I just ran a Google search on it and saw it was 2,200 miles (not sure how rugged the terrain is). I know I couldn't hang in for a hike of the full trail. In addition to PTSD/TBI I also have back issues and that would be out of the realm of realistic for me. When you say a "partial" hike what did you have in mind? How many miles? Starting point and ending point? Where are you based out of? Just trying to gather more info to be able to give you more insight...
