And so it begins

Where to start?? I guess a proper introduction is in order.
It will be two months until my wife and I set out on the trail! We met in college 7 years ago and have been happily married for 4 years. Right after graduation we both went straight to work and did not set aside any time for an adventure. We considered the Peace Corps and may still later in life but we are in need of a new challenge and adventure. We have been hiking and backpacking together since we met and have done many hikes all over Arizona some of our favorites were the Bright Angel Trail, Havasupai Falls, Fossil Creek, Aravaipa Canyon, and the Superstation mountains. We still have to print maps, get a better handle on our resupply (We will mostly buy as we go, who in their right mind can dehydrate, pack, and ship 5 months of food for two people?) not us, try and get our base weight at around 12lbs or less, and find the all important right shoe. I bought the ugliest pair of shoes I have ever seen today but they were over half off, I cant wait to see Vanessa's reaction.

I think I got all of the boring stuff out of the way. I have about one more week of work left and then we can focus more time on planning and getting more hikes in. I hope to get a few days on the Arizona Trail and possibly do a rim to rim in the Grand Canyon.

Anyone in AZ hiking this year want to go out for some day hikes with us?
