10th Anniversary of a Thru Hike - 2 weeks and counting

- 10th Anniversary of our Northbound AT Hike 
Blissful and Paul Bunyan - 

During the next two weeks I will be reposting blogs and other excerpts written at the time of our AT hike in 2007 from Georgia to Maine with my sixteen year old son. 

Read all about our 2007 adventure in our book - Mountains, Madness, and Miracles available on Amazon from WhiteFire Publishing.

In two weeks we will be doing the Approach Trail to Springer Mtn. Hard to even comprehend. Even harder when I think how long a journey it has been to get me here and then what awaits me. I wonder if I will just be in a state of shock during it, like this is not reality. I mean, I will certainly have the reality and the pain of the hike. But the idea I am really doing this, from Georgia all the way to Maine. Five and a half months. Amazing.

I like to think of the old Michael Card song when it comes to this adventure. "There is a joy in the journey." And that is really what I want to have. Joy in the journey.

Getting gear and maildrops in order
