Hiking AZT for our troops!

Post by mikka » Feb 21 2015 2:00 pm

Hi, I'm starting March 1st through-hiking AZT Nobo to raise awareness and funds for Homes For Our Troops, a non-profit providing specialized housing to critically disabled veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. If you would like to donate to this amazing organization, please visit my fundraising page at: fundraise.hfotusa.org/hikefortroops
I'm happy to see that many of us will be starting in early March - Hope to see you out there!

Hope your hike goes well; it's certainly for a good cause.
Know you are planning an early start. I live in Tucson, have hiked the AZT. If you haven't seen a forecast, there is a storm predicted for the beginning of March. Snow expected at the higher elevations, and since you go up to 9000 feet in the first Passage, route finding could be an issue. You may want to consider a delay, or GPS, or walking the bike route.

Thanks very much - I'm keeping a close eye on the weather. I'll adjust my plans accordingly - I have no desire to start my journey cold and wet!
