Description of Idea

The Appalachian Trail stretches more than 2,000 miles through 14 states, from Maine's mighty Katahdin to Georgia's forested Springer Mountian. Nearly two-thirds of the US population lives within a day's drive of this continuously marked footpath. Each year, about 2,000 hikers attempt to thru-hike the trail, but only 200 succeed! What we are going to do today is figure out how many steps it would take to get to Maine's Katadhin!
