Hey, everyone! I'm leaving to hike the ADT from Missouri to Delaware starting May 31st of 2013! I'll start somewhere near the Kansas/Missouri state line. I'm 21 years old and somewhat new to the whole thing but plan to learn along the way! If anyone is going in the same direction or we'll meet up at any time maybe we could walk together or just stop and become friends! Feel free to contact me!
My husband, JC, and I plan, Lord willing, to get on the trail soon. (Delaware to Cali.) JC has spent a lot of time reading about the American Discovery Trail, and watching videos of people who have walked it. He watched all the videos of Mike, the Lion King, and often showed me clips. We\'re excited & motivated to get on the trail as soon as possible, and would like to know if anyone has any suggestions for us, from personal experience on this trail or others.

I just finished a 560 mile trip from tn to fl on a horse and wagon, you can see the trip on Facebook AMERICA BY HORSE AND WAGON I love to hear fro any one traveling the discovery trail I will start my trip soon around July or agust.
I like the ADT website, all of it, including the USA map with state-by-state ADT detail. Really good. Here in Colorado, it is nice that the ADT is, in places, co-located with The Colorado Trail and the Continental Divide Trail. Very cool.

Correction to my previous entry. I am starting at Henlopen Beach, Delaware, not Limantour Beach, CA. Traveling Westward from the ADT Start/End point at Henlopen, DE to Limantour, CA probably along the northern route.
I started the ADT from Limantour Beach, CA on 3/21 and am headed to Delaware on foot. I will be backpacking and running the route. I have partnered with the North American Envirothon (www.envirothon.org) and would love for anyone who reads this to consider supporting the organization in some way!
I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2011 and walked southbound from Maine to Georgia. My trail name is Amplexus.
If anyone is interested in keeping up with my trip, you can find me online at www.outdoorjosh.com. There are links to facebook and twitter as well.
I am currently in Oakland, CA on day 5! Please feel free to contact me if you would like to help me make it across the country in some way (lodging, funding, food etc). Thanks!
i hope to leave on my trip across the ADT this year once it gets warmmer out , i plan to take my recumbent trike about 100 miles a day or better and complete it tryig to meet the people who live around the trail from what I see they are a great buch hope to to you all this year.
Update to my previous guest entry; change of plans. I am going to cycle (bike) the ADT instead of walking/hiking to save time. I should be able to complete the coast to coast trek from Delaware ADT Start/End point to California ADT Start/End point in twelve months or less weather and other considerations, complications, flat-tires, etc. depending. I would enjoy the company of a healthy drug free female to accompany me on my trek and journey. Should be drug and alcohol free, sound body, sound mind, well adjusted, no whiners, no complainers and must have an income to feed yourself. If you are such a female and are interested in meeting me at the ADT Start/End point at Limantour Beach, Delaware early May, please feel free to send me a text message to my cell; (619)313-3977 and I will reply in kind, thank you, have an amazing day, hope to see you on the trail
I am going to start my ADT Trek from Cape Helopen, Delaware ADT start trail about May 5-6, 2013 walking west to California ADT trail end. I am going to try to make the journey in 24 months or less. I am 56 year old retired Army Veteran 26 years honorable service.
I biked the ADT in 2001. It's fun to see how the web site and trail have evolved.

My friend, Richard, and I are planning to hike the entire ADT from West to East starting on or around April 15th. Any joiners? Please contact! Also - how do you get water for crossing the desert? That's our only concern at this point. Anyone who has made the trip already, please let us know!
I plan on hiking from utah to points east using a hand and foot cart this spring, any suggestions would be welcomed.
I depart April 1st and I'm really stoked. IS anyone else going april 1st. If so what will be your speed? Please e-mail me
