me being patient!

Day before...

Well, starting out with a bit of a snag forgot my drivers license!! Security was interesting!! Couldnt check-in my backpack, they took everything out to examine, confiscating my tiny yellow pocket knife! Then I was aggressively patted down by TSA :)

Arrived in ATL, 39 degrees and a wind advisory!

Marta train north to Sandy Springs where my company resides.

Ok, so I said my goodbyes at VMware, now waiting for Ron the driver, he is a little late!

Ron was awesome, full of good advice. Most important, start off slow, dont push. He mapped out my first 4 days!!

He left me at Visitors Center at 4:59pm, it closes at 5pm. I got in long enough to register!

I hiked to the lodge thru the famous arch! Being so late, I didnt get a pic of me under the arch! It was a tough 1 mile uphill!

I am eating dinner at the lodge restaurant. After, repacking my backpack. Then practice filtering water. Finally bed!!

Good night!!

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:
