So Remember how I told the entire world I was going to hike to Maine and thereby dooming myself to embarrassment if I don't? (thanks again Past Mary) well reality check. My new goal is to make it as far as I can, taking one day at a time. At the moment Katahdin is sort of like a bonus feature. Because I mean hey, it's the journey not the destination, right?

So very beautiful. NE Georgia and western NC -- one of my favorite areas of this planet. You are causing me to start to dream of the Mountains to Sea trail in NC

Mary, like Robin, I'm a friend of your mother's who LOVES the Appalachian Trail. I've hiked some of the peaks in NH and Maine. In addition, my son, a current high school senior, wanted to attend HMI but couldn't. Hiking the AT would be a wonderful experience for him so I'm reading and thinking. Good luck and I'm really looking forward to learning about your experiences.

Keep on truckin'--the Trail only gets better. It's a path to happiness. The way I always kept motivated were looking forward to the next climb and looking forward to the next rainstorm. The challenges ARE what makes the trail the trail... :)

wow, you started a thru hike really early. Have you met other thru hikers?
