Just under 9 days to go!
As many may or may not know about hiking the AT Trail, you burn A LOT of calories each day. They say roughly 4000-6000 per day! Obviously, you cannot carry enough food on you to replenish the calorie deficit hikers run into. That is why they gorge themselves with just about anything they want in town! My data book lists every AYCE (All You Can Eat) restruants in all the towns along the trail, and I will hit as many as I can find!
So for fun, I am giving a prize to the person who can guess the closest:
What my weight will be at the end of my hike.
Currently, I weighed in at 167 pounds this morning, so that will be about the weight I will begin at. So just post your guess in the comments.
Tie Breaker question:
How many individual pop-tarts will I consume along the trail?
Remember I will be hiking for 4-5 months! Please post that answer with your guess. :O)
