The Appalachian Trail (AT) is one of the nations greatest physical challenges. While the full 2190+ mile thru hike takes 3-6 months to complete, a section hike is a great way to experience the thrill. I started F3 three months ago as a way to prepare for a 170 mile section hike from Spring Mnt to Fontana Dam. Because my start date is 9/23/23, I picked the last day (9/20/23) I will be with my F3 brothers for my VQ.
