Appalachian Trail Map

Journal Entry

Well it's official! I will be attempting to thru-hike the entire 2,175 mile Appalachian Trail from Springer Mtn in Georgia to Mt. Katadyn in Maine and GUESS WHAT?? I'm bringing you all with me...virtually, through the computer. This will be your source for the Groton Appalachian Trail project. I'm packing my bag with important things like a tent, food, and a sleeping bag but I am also bringing my phone and a sweet solar charger so I can communicate with everyone on the trail through this website. If you're interested in what I'm bringing, there is a list to the right.

On April 3rd I am meeting my friend Kevin (and his dog Lucy) in Atlanta, Georgia. You'll all get to know him soon because we'll be spending 24 hours a day together for 5 months. Think about that: that's more time than most married couples spend together. Will we get sick of each other? Can you think of anyone you could spend that much time with? We'll hike together, talk together, cook together, do laundry together, and probably disagree on a lot of things but you know what? We'll have to work together because we both have a goal to reach Maine by the end of August.

Between now and April I'll be talking about all of the preparation that goes into a trip like this; the food, the packing, getting in shape, etc. Let's go hiking!

Appalachian Trail - 2009

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
