Appalachian Trail Map

Mobile test

Ok. I'm going to try and post this from my smartphone as this is most likely the way that I am going to update my journal from the trail. This is also the reason that I chose to use Postholer rather than that "other" journal website;I heard that it is easier to use this one from the woods, plus I think I can also just email an entry if circumstances warrant. So far so good I guess... The UI is a little clunky but I think that I can make do with this.... Oh the humanity! LOL.
Any way here is some quick info on me... I like the outdoors, I am quite comfortable sleeping and commuting among the trees. The past four years or so have seen me hiking and backpacking all around my home state of Michigan, usually to the tune of 300 to 400 miles per season. Now I am acutely aware that this is a far cry from what the Appalachian Trail will demand of me, and to be honest I am a little concerned with the mountains as it is so flat here and I don't have much experience with them, but I have been training (mostly running) a good deal and I have worked and researched a fair bit to get my pack weight pretty low so I think I will be alright. In fact I'm pretty confident. Barring injury, which is a very real consideration at my age, I have every intention of touching that fabled wooden sign up on top of rocky Kahdahdin.
