Hiking through a TX summer is really a treat… unbelievably HOT!! I’ve backed off quite a bit during July and August, hiking minimally. During my some spare time, I’ve been concentrating on gear… making a list and checking it twice… over and over! As you can see, I’ve been wondering how I’m going to get all this into my 60 liter Osprey. Practice, Practice, Practice! I still have a few incidentals to finish but this is pretty much all of it. I feel pretty good at this point to be as ready as I am. Now I just need to hike more. I’m not under any illusion that preparing in TX will get me ready for what’s to come on the AT, but it’s what I have to work with so I’ll make the best of it.
March is coming fast… considering it was 18 months ago I decided to take up the challenge, man time flies!!
