Here's a list of books that we've read in preparation for our AT thru-hike. I will periodically be adding to this list as we discover them.

"AWOL on the Appalachian Trail" by David "AWOL" Miller
"Appalachian Trials" by Zachary "Badger" Davis
"The A.T. Guide" by David "AWOL" Miller
"A Walk in the Woods" by Bill Bryson
"Just Passin' Through" by Winton Porter


  1. Which of these books would you recommend the most? I'm set to hike the AT in 2015 and am so eager to get out there! Just reading through your blog is killing me inside while I sit here in my office. I'd love to get lost in one of these books while I wait and prepare for 2015!

  2. I highly recommend AWOL on the Appalachian Trail! It will give you a first hand account of what it's actually like out there and get you even more pumped for your upcoming hike!
