Sending Mail
Appalachian Trial thru-hikers love mail. Receiving mail is one of the chief distinctions between thru-hikers and hobos. I will be receiving mail at several locations over the hike, tentatively estimated to be the towns listed above in bold. These are either post offices or private business, both of which will hold mail for me until I arrive.

If you would like to send me something, proper labeling is important. For towns listed in bold with a c/o address, follow this example:

Peter Dunn
c/o Nantahala Outdoor Center
13077 Hwy. 19W
Bryson City, NC 28713

Please hold for AT hiker due 4/4

For towns listed in bold without an address, I’ll be receiving mail at the post office. Follow this example:

Peter Dunn
General Delivery
Hot Springs, NC 28743

Please hold for AT hiker due 4/17

For towns not listed in bold, please drive directly to the town and wait for me to arrive.
