Hello all! My name is Lindsey and this year I am launching a pilot season of my Thruhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, a thruhiking prep program! Over the last few years I have discovered that while I have a deep love of all things planning not everyone feels that way. I hear from folks, time and time again, that they would love to take on a thruhike but the logistics of planning it are too much for them. Even folks who do successfully get out on trail admit that the planning process was so painful it negatively impacted their thruhike. And then there's me, over here just planning trips for the fun of it. So I figured - why not share the skills and experience I have and help get people out on trail? 

In 2013 I completed the Appalachian Trail and in 2016 I thruhiked the Pacific Crest Trail. I have hiked the Wonder...

So you want to do a thruhike, eh? Have you been bringing thruhiking up for years, telling anyone who will listen that someday you want to do a thruhike? Or have you been hiding the desire deep down in the folds of your soul, barely letting yourself believe that you want to thruhike? Either way let’s stop saying you WANT to thruhike and start saying you’re GOING to thruhike. You’re GOING to do a thruhike! Wow, congratulations, that’s awesome! 

You might have your eyes set on the Pacific Crest Trail or the Appalachian trail, or perhaps something a little shorter like the Colorado Trail or the Florida Trail. No matter which thruhike you’re planning on doing it is a huge undertaking and there are a couple of major questions that people usually ask: How do I prepare for a thuhike and how do I afford a thruhike?...
