Almost here

It’s almost go-time. We finished up our last training hike today (~10.25 miles with full pack weight at Port Clinton going southbound). The first mail drop was shipped to Georgia yesterday. Monday morning we’re driving down to near Blacksburg, Virginia, then Tuesday it’s on to Amicalola Falls State Park in Georgia, where the southern terminus of the trail is on Springer Mountain. Wednesday morning it’s officially on. Can’t wait to get started!

Second training hike

Got another training hike in today in the snow. We upped the pack weight a little bit and did 6 miles on the sobo side of Lehigh Gap. A little cold and wet but fun stuff nonetheless.



First Training Hike

First Training Hike of the year.  Did a short, but sweet 3 miles on the AT (North) where it crosses 309.  Next time we need to add more weight and go longer.
