Hello everyone!! I’m about to begin what I anticipate to be my final section of an awesome AT experience. The trail is calling and I must go! I’m flying out today and expect to begin my hike in the morning. I didn’t expect anything unusual, but with me and my sweetie anything is possible! It’s a awesome thing to have the patience of a saint!! LOL. When we rolled out of the driveway at 3:30 everything was planned to the finest detail… that lasted 3 miles when my sweetie said, “OMG I don’t have my phone!!!” 10 minutes later we are back home to discover the phone was in her purse…..Grrrrrrrr. Another 30 minutes later we arrive at the airport, I hand the keys to my sweetie, get out of the car…. she locks the keys on the car……Grrrrrrrrr. Luckily I had popped the truck lid. You don’t really appreciate how small a Honda civic is until you are crawling through the trunk to get the door open!! As a memento, I sustained my first AT injury before I actually touched the trail. She says “Rub some dirt in it… Walk it off…” Can anyone say infection!!!
I’M BAAAAACK. YAHOO!!!!!! 800 Miles to go!
