A thousand Miles begins with the first step...

I have heard the saying, 'A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step'. For me to do a long distance hike, the first step was planning it out. Food, places you can resupply, how long it would take to get there, and where you can get a shower or laundry. By the time the first step is taken, it was already planned out, and it is a formality to actually hike the trail. There are always unknowns, and things you can't plan for, so you may have to adjust your plans. But the trip itself is now the adventure.



I am now in the beginning phases of planning that adventure, and I eagerly look forward to getting it done. For now it is starting a 'Spread Sheet'. That has the resupply points, and calculating the days it will take to get to each one. Then zero days, and then the number... The number of days for the length of the trip. From the day I set my feet at the Southern Terminus, till my feet cross the Canadian Boarder. I so look forward to it. But there are many details that have nothing to do with the trip itself which must be completed.
