I called the lodge to see if my pack had arrived. The guy at the counter said, “yes, it’s here Chris so you cant count on the postal service to get you out of this !!” ha!
So, Monday evening we catch a flight to Chattanooga, on Tuesday an easy drive to Ammicalola Falls (2-3 hrs). The plan is to enjoy the evening relaxing with good company, meet some NOBO’s then head out at first light on Wednesday. I’ll be starting at FS42 and backtracking to Springer (almost a mile). Abbie (my wife) plans to hike up springer then back to the car so 2 miles total for her….. She bought new hiking boots so I’m pretty sure she’ll be able to make the journey, if there is any hint of rain, I’m on my own 🙂
Today I’m at work and still trying to improve my charity contributions…. thruhikeat.com
Saying goodbye and enjoying the friendly comments and a good laugh…. It’s a different world in this place, the only way to believe it is to see it! Even then after 30 years I wonder sometimes how I became like them !!! lol
So,,,,, it begins. If you see me on the trail I’ll most likely be looking at my feet if I’m walking….Say hello and lets head north!
