So... now is a good time to start filling your RSS reader up with the new blogs for the 2013 AT class. I started a list of the blogs that I know of and I'll do my best to keep it updated. Right now they're all a little similar (FAQs, gear lists, etc), but once they start hiking it's really fun to follow along.
