I may be interested but couldn't commit until closer to the date of departure.

I'd be interested, although most likely can't get the time. So, moral support at least.

How many people do this each year?

I've always wanted to do this thru-hike but as Philsweep said I couldn't commit until closer to the date. Are you firm on the August timeframe or would you be able to do another summer month? I'll be in Jay in July for a week and could extend that trip if you were able to come up then.

I'm thinking about thru-hiking it around the same time, maybe late Aug/early Sept, but I'm aiming for a little bit quicker pace. Still up in the air about the dogs part too. One of mine is 100% made for fast, long distance travel but she's aging...

I'm hoping to thru-hike in August but I am a slow hiker :/ Maybe we'll cross paths though!

First Week in August?

Willow, I'll be hiking the trail starting July 30, and finishing it in eight or nine days at the most. Let me know if that's a time frame that might work!

Sorry,
i would sooner accept a hot dog from a fellow subway rider in NY city than to accompany a hiker recruited from the internet.
Nine or ten days is a long time.

I am sure they would do a few day-hikes or overnights together first and see if they were compatible. But, that's their business.

The free hot dogs in the NYC subway aint too bad.

A hot dog takes two or three minutes to consume, once you're in a three or ten day hike, other issues can arise.
