Appalachian Trail: The Adventure Begins

I am writing this post before I actually start the Appalachian Trail (AT).  So everything I write here is subject to change.

If everything went right, Mama's Taxi picked me up from my hotel and dropped me and my pack at the Amicalola Falls state park visitor's center.  There I signed the AT log, weighed my pack, and hopefully gotten my picture taken at the stone archway leading to the Springer Mountain approach trail.  By the time you read this I should be at the Springer Mountain shelter - the official start of the AT.

I will be highlighting the date field on my AT stages (see the Appalachian Trail Tab above under the header picture) indicating where I have hiked and where I will be hiking for the each stage ... assuming I have internet access at my rest stops.  I will also update changes to my plan including changes to stops and dates, if any.

This is the last of the mini-blast of posts this week.  My next update should be in four days when I get to Neel Gap.  I'm hoping the Mountain Crossings' hostel has WiFi/internet.  If it doesn't, my next update won't be until the 16th of April when I get to Franklin, NC and I take my first break.

And away I go ...
