    I haven't read it in a couple of days, but it sounds like the bus trip was most unpleasant.

    It does sound like he wasn't a very happy camper (no pun intended) on the bus ride. I hope the hike treats him better. I'm sure it will, like he says, it will all work out in the end.

    Greyhound bus rides suck. I know this. It's almost like a insane asylum on wheels.

    Not as bad as riding LexTran though. I've done it once and I'll never do it again!

    I'd fly into Atlanta. From what I understand there are several groups/people that will transport you from there.

    Ohio to Georgia on a bus wouldn't be to bad. You still have to find a way to get to the AT from Atlanta. Lots of hostels will pick you up. Go to www.whiteblaze.net and start lurking..tons of info to look at
