Not OP but, for people planning to hike the entire trail in one season, there is a relatively narrow window of when you need to start. Too soon and the first mountain passes you meet will be snowed in. Too late and you'll be running in to a lot of snow further north.

That plus the increasing popularity of thruhiking has led to there being a "herd" at the starting point that will spread out due to people's varying walking speed, daily start time, etc.

Missouri is more pro-gun (in terms of laws anyway) than Texas.
