Bucket List- Appalachian Trail

Hiking the Appalachian Trail has been on my Bucket List for a long time. With my torn meniscus, a thru hike is out of the question for now. The more I've thought about it the more I've realized that, at this point in my life, hiking for 4-7 months would be a rediculously wasteful use of my time. That just me in my situation. But, I would love to spend maybe a week each summer hiking a different section of the AT in each state and/or unique geographical region. How fun would that be?

Paul and I were thinking that we might even try to do it this coming summer. The only problem is that most of our summer will be spent out west- far from the AT, so it may not happen. We are also planning to go out to Lake Havasu and to hike the Grand Canyon again this summer. So much to do, so little time and money! ;)

Even if we can't hike the AT this summer, I am trying to research and decide on which section we should do on our first week. I've hiked short sections in both the Smoky Mtns in TN and NC and the Blue Ridge Mtns in VA. My Aunt and Uncle have property that borders the trail in NY and I think it might be fun to hike up in their region. Any suggestions? Anyone?

Does anyone have any special plans for the summer? What's on your bucket list?

Speaking of trails and mountains and such, I think us "kids" should go camping when you come for confirmation! 'Cause John'll be here too, and I think it'd be fun to go on Coakley kid camping trip!

PERFECT!!! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! Only one problem- Paul says I can't go camping and have fun without him! LOL :)
