So I guess hiking the Appalachian Trail is a lot like baseball..."It's 90% mental, the other half is physical."
Staying focused and motivated is so important and is why we can't thank our friends and family enough for their encouragement and support.
This blog was created as a way to keep those people updated on the preparation for and progress of our journey, and as an outlet to keep in touch throughout the entire process. Contrary to what some may think, we won't be completely off the grid for 5 months. We'll have to hike into town to re-supply, pick up drop boxes at the Post Office, grab a hamburger and a beer, and of course, update our blog ----at least once a week. So keep checking in with us, we'll be updating on a pretty regular basis!
Also, I know that several of you have expressed interest in meeting us out there for a stretch of the trail (which would be awesome!) This blog will be a great way to track us down and coordinate a rendezvous.
Today, marks 60 days til departure, and crunch time for getting ourselves in gear!
More updates to come...
