Dick, Eddi & Marion at Bly Gap, AT

Training

Marion and I led a hike on Saturday (2/23) for the Georgia Appalachian Trail Club (GATC) that is a yearly ritual. This hike is called 'Run to the Border' (name taken from a now defunct Taco Bell commercial). It is a 17.6 mile walk from Dick's Creek Gap in Georgia to Bly Gap, the border with North Carolina and back again. Dick came along too, and we posed at a famous landmark -- THE tree at Bly Gap. We met three AT thru hikers headed North to Maine, everyone smiling. The outing was a good training trip, makes me realize I have to log a few more miles to be in PCT shape. I'm also in training on how to create this journal so I can keep up with it once we get on the PCT. (my thanks to the creator -- this journal software/site is terrific) so I've entered our coordinates in Georgia. Click on the latitude below and you'll see where Bly Gap is.
