Start alone... trust me, you won't be alone and that way you'll meet folks who are hiking your pace and have the same schedule as you do. Trying to get a hiking partner prior to setting out is extremely difficult as everyone has such different paces and mileage they are able to do every day. You'll be surrounded by many, many people setting out in March. You'll find your crew naturally by starting solo. 

Good luck to you!
