Appalachian Trail Map

Looking Ahead to 2013!

This will serve as an introduction and also keep the journal up-to-date.
I have been section hiking for the last three years on the southern part of the AT, from Springer to 19E in Tennessee. This all started as a way to celebrate my 60th birthday, but since I still work 60 hours a week at the hospital, the hikes have to be section hikes for now! I am hoping all of that will change with retirement in 2016 (please don't move the goalposts, Mr. President!). Tentative plans are to start a thru-hike in March of 2017!
While waiting for my next vacation and the chance to do another 80 or so, I have been tweaking the equipment, aiming to take off another pound for every year until The Hike! That should put me in the single digit area, dry. The advantage of these short section hikes is that it gives me a chance to try out new ideas and angles (as if there were anything new in hikerdom!) So, I'll try to keep you informed as we go, what works for me, and what doesn't!
