OK, I'm finally doing it! My whole life and all my life's experiences have brought me to this point. I've decided to hike all 2,175 miles of the Appalachian Trail which starts at Springer Mountain, GA (northern GA) and ends at Mt. Katahdin, ME (central Maine). I Have most of what I need but there are still some items I do not have and will certainly need. I wish all of you could come with me, but I will bring you in spirit.
