I just ordered my WBBB last week and am looking forward to getting off the ground (at least for the warmer months). I have been lurking for a couple of weeks now and this forum has already been a huge resource for me.
I've hiked since I was a little kid. I've done all kinds of stuff from Ruffner Mountain here in Birmingham to day hikes on the AT in NC and have recently been spending every nice weekend in the Sipsey Wilderness. I can't wait until I have the time, gear, and experience to do some longer treks.
