Time to go....

Planning trip blues.

Although I have planned trips before and walked many a mile on the North Country trail, planning the Appalachian trail has been a real challenge. The first thing I noticed is the major change in the gear list, spending money to save ounces gets expensive real quick. I am determined to shave pack weight down to maximum 35 lbs, food water included. I am not going ultra light, but middle weight as I will make town stops very few and be required to carry more food.

Final pack weight 38 pounds.
