Appalachian Trail Patches

img_3318

Often buying at least one touristy thing when going overseas, from a Loch Ness monster to a coconut flower lamp is a goal of mine…these patches are that one thing.

As you can see there is the ‘AT Georgia to Maine’ patch along with a patch for each state I will pass through. I’m not sure I actually want to stick them to my backpack. From what I have seen on post AT trail talk, your gear is pretty much ready to toss after such a trek.

The passport which you can get stamped along the way didn’t appeal to me as a memento.

There is quite a bit of merchandise you can buy – of course. These came from the Appalachian Trail Conservancy of which I became a member. Membership assists the work of the AT Conservancy and its many volunteers preserve and maintain the Appalachian Trail.
