    You know your AT hike is getting closer...

    when you open your your kitchen drawer to get the "Cling Wrap" and read it as "Clingmans Dome". For rea!

    Wife and I are leaving about April 1st and we'll both be hanging in Dangerbirds. Hope to see many at Trail Days.

    If you'll be doing trail journals, post us a link so we can follow along.

    Oh and good luck.

    The other day I was talking to Dancer on the phone and told her I had to go resupply for a few days. What I meant to say was that I needed to make a run to the grocery store.

    That's one of the few unresolved things I have to deal with. Right now I'm leaning toward Postholer as it's fairly easy to post using a Droid phone from the trail. If I go with Trail Journals I'll need a transcriber which will may be a hassle for them. It would be easier for me because I could send pre-recorded voice messages via email and the transcriber would post it as text. I will post here when I've made a final decision.

    BTW...the plan is to do half this year and half next year. We want to really take our time and enjoy the experience without the pressure of a deadline.

    So incredibly jealous. I wish work could do without me for like 6 months; I would love to do a thru-hike. Sometimes I hate being an adult.
    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...

    I was planning on leaving this Spring for my thru-hike but college required me to take one more class so I am putting the trail off till March of 2013. I am so excited for you. I look forward to hearing trip reports. Good luck!!!

    I'm starting with an anticipated herd of folks about April 1st....no smart aleck remarks about April fools please. I'm not too concerned about the crowd as we never sleep in shelters. I look at it more as a moving party of sorts. Have a great hike.
