HVAC Repair On The Appalachian Trail

If you own and or run a business that caters to hikers on the Appalachian Trail, or any other trail for that matter, then you should take great care to ensure that your facilities are up to snuff so that your guests will be as comfortable as possible when they visit your establishment.

Thru-hikers on the AT will always be looking for a place to rest their weary heads and they will want to be as comfortable as possible when they take a rest break to eat, sleep, do laundry, and all the other stuff that hikers do when they are enjoying some down time.

How does air conditioning and heating come into play here? Well, your HVAC accommodations will go a long way to driving some business your way if you run a tight ship. The same would go for amenities like shower head pressure, TV access, internet access, etc.

But for me, as a hiker, I think that if a place has great air conditioning and heating considerations, then I can work around a lot of the other stuff that many take for granted. I love my air conditioner and cannot imagine how people lived without the luxury of climate control.

Obviously comfort levels on the trail will greatly decrease because we are putting ourselves into the environment, but when we get to a rest area we want to be as comfortable as possible and this is why I am writing this article, to point out that many business providers couldn’t care less about the issue of hiker comfort.

That should just about do it for this article, I think I’ve probably rambled on long enough about how comfortable I like to be when I’m not grinding it out on any given trail. Remember, AC repair is something to consider if you own a business that caters to long-distance hikers, because they will appreciate the effort and they will tell their friends.

AC Repair Las Vegas is a business that knows a thing or two about HVAC repairs and you can read more about the process on their website.

How Long Will It Take To Hike The Appalachian Trail?

Appalachian Trail thru Hiking Experience

If you want to know how long it will take to hike the appalachian trail then you came to the right place because I have an answer to the question about the length of time that it takes most hikers to go from Springer Mountain in Georgia all the way up to the lovely state of Maine and Mt. Katahdin.

Most hikers who thru hike the AT will average about 6 months from start to finish. Some hikers will actually break up the trip into sections and do it that way, but I think I could do it in one shot in about six months.

I would like to take my time while on the trail so 6 months seems about right to me. I won’t be in any particular hurry along the way because I will have quit my job and set up an income stream to help supplement me and pay my bills while I’m off dealing with my mid life crisis.

The fastest person to finish a thru hike of the appalachian trail did it in less than 2 months, but I don’t recollect the exact time it took. When somebody endeavors to go this fast on the trail they inevitably must have a crew of people to help them along the way to provide shelter, food, water, etc. Sounds boring, huh?

Some people start out very slowly for whatever reason and they never finish the trail, even though they never officially quit or anything, they just get held up by their own lack of progress. Baxter state park in Maine closes for the winter in mid October so if you haven’t made it there by that time then you won’t be able to ascend the final peak which is the goal of every hiker who starts a thru hike.
