Oct warm-up hike with a Sub-2 pound pack weight.

New Journal - First Entry

Today is 3 February and I am editing this entry. I had planned to be on the AT within a week or so. I received a "Jury Duty" Summons in the mail today. The selection process starts 22 February. This is the fourth time I have been called for Jury Duty. I was selected once out of the four. If I am not selected I will only have 3 weeks to hike. I have a weeks worth of medical follow-up exams the third week of March. After that I will have another 3 months to hike then more medical exams. If I get picked I expect I will just wait till the first of April to start.

I haven't really started a Journal and thought I would try this site. My current plan is to start at Springer Mt the last week of January 2007. I am listing my start date as January 31 but I may start a day or so sooner or a day or so later.

I did a warm-up hike in Georgia with a friend this past October. We hiked what is called the GA Loop. I will post some pictures of that hike and a short Sub-2 pound pack weight, second hike I did after he went back home.

I make almost all my own gear and the October hike was a test of me and some of the Home-Made gear I will be using on my AT hike.

It is really nice to have "Spell Check".

Appalachian Trail - 2007

The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) is more than 2,175-mile long footpath stretching through 14 eastern states from Maine to Georgia. Conceived in 1921 and first completed in 1937, it traverses the wild, scenic, wooded, pastoral, and culturally significant lands of the Appalachian Mountains. Learn more: www.appalachiantrail.org
