Item 1: Appalachian Trail, 2019
The club discussed the upcoming summer hike on the Appalachian Trail this summer. David Sweeney opened with two suggestions for the AT hike. First, that crews be limited in number to make logistics and skill levels easier, and second, that the crews consider separate itineraries. These suggestions were discussed and adopted, yielding the following decisions for the upcoming hike.
This year’s hike will consist of two separate itineraries:
Trek: Springer to Unicoi Gap
