Welcome to my Appalachian Trail blog. My hike starts on Springer Mountain, Georgia on 4 March 2014 and will (hopefully) end on Mt. Kathadin, Maine at the end of July. There will be a few posts prior to my departure listing some of my gear, providing some trail background, and a few helpful links. Once I begin hiking, I will post when I can – probably no more than every 3 – 4 days. If you wish to follow this blog, the easiest way is to sign up for update notifications on the right side of this page. Thanks!
