Today, Wednesday December the 28th, 2016 just so happens to be the 100 day mark until my adventure starts! I received my trail tag in the mail late last night, so the reality is sinking in and I am truly bursting at the seams with anticipation (and having a really tough time sleeping)!
We will start our adventure at Amicalola Falls on April 8th, 2017 (My trail buddy’s Birthday!!). Although the Falls are not included in the official AT, what is another 8 miles when you are already scaling 2,190?
With 100 days to go, I am certainly bustling to finalize all of my plans and gear, as well as get this organization up and running- oh, and of course learning how to create a website- which is WAY outside of my wheelhouse! I have tons of questions and ideas rolling around upstairs, and I can’t wait to see them come to fruition.
Did you know we get re-named on the trail? I am looking forward to so many things, and this is definitely one of them (Although it makes me pretty nervous too!)- I think it will be incredibly interesting to find out what others with no background information decide to name me. What would you name me?? Tell me in the comments below!
I can’t wait to share my adventure with you- thank you for your interest and I hope you will help me spread the word when the fundraiser is up and running.
Trish (For now :P)
