FKT or Fastest known time

The start date for my journey is fast approaching, while i can’t give an exact date i can say i will begin by the end of march.
This is a northbound self supported attempt and i will utilize everything that would typically be available to all thru hikers on trail as well as pre packed and shipped boxes with multiple days worth of supplies.

Fastest known time or FKT’s are becoming increasingly popular and I believe with good reason. I believe there is something very beneficial in pushing yourself to new levels.
The Appalachian Trail is a great way to explore these levels!
I planning on having lots of fun while at the same time pushing myself to go further in the pursuit of self improvement. 

Here are a few of the principles I follow while I hike.





In the event that I fall short of my goals I will be sure to return to Springer for a fifth ,sixth ,seventh ,etc amount of times necessary to get it right. 

All movements will be GPS recorded and tracked by FKT .com in addition to signing all log books and as much self documentation as possible. 

I look forward to keeping everyone updated as often as possible and I am grateful to have a platform such as the trek that makes this possible.
