    Default Appalachian Trail - 2011 Thru Hikers

    Does anybody know Corey's link to track him on the Appalachian Trail? If it needs a password you can PM it to me.

    He really is making good time. I wish the map had a little mileage chart in the corner. Unless I'm missing something.

    He's approaching Woods Hole Shelter which is at 98.6 miles from the start of the trail.

    Here's a nice little distance calculator.

    If you have googleEarth installed the Appalachian Trail Conservancy has GPS data of the entire trail and location of all the shelters. Download the trail centerline file and the shelters file. Then when Corey checks-in or Spot reports, copy the Lat/Long into the search on gEarth and you'll find exactly where he is in relation to the whole trail. You can then use the first link to figure out some distances.

    Does anyone know if the best place to check for updates is his facebook page?
