More Prepin'

Been a very busy time for me since my last entry! I'm just finishing my 29 years of service in the Army with my retirement ceremony in mid-Oct. I have a few more months "on the books" until I finishing expending all my leave on Jan 31. I'll be joining up with my wife in Pennsylvania in a few weeks and spend the next few months training for the hike and getting resupply packages sorted out.

As for hiking, I've been doing 8 mile or so hikes a every few days locally and was able to knock out a 35 miler up in the Olympics in July. Was hoping to hit the Foothills Trail here in SC, but alas, too much going on! Feel pretty happy with my pack load out--comfortable and sitting right around 13 pounds base weight.

In other news, I got my PCTA permit with a trail day at Campo of 2 April. I plan on heading out to my brothers' place in Arizona and hit the AZT as a "Warm Up" for the PCT in Feb/Mar. Probably won't have time to do the whole thing, but should get a good start on trail legs after winter starts winding down.

Totally Psyched to Get in On!

A Swamp Fox Takes A Stroll In The Woods

Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
~John Muir
