The biggest thanks of all however goes to my wife, Katie. She's been working every waking hour to help make this a reality, too. She's my "Trail Boss," and in addition to keeping me alive and sane while I live outside, she's also taken on a huge role in managing this website (she added the email subscription feature you see below...USE IT!)
Tomorrow morning (Saturday, May 10th, 2014) I'll get to Springer Mountain, GA somewhere around 10AM. (It's about 3 hours from my house, so this time may or may not hold true.) My good friend Mark will be joining me for the first two days, and after that I'll just walk north until I get there.
I don't really know what else to say right now, so I'll just answer some of the many questions that have been sent in, in no particular order: No, I won't carry a gun because I won't need one; If it rains I'll get wet; I'll see Godzilla in the first town I reach after May 16th that has a theater; the atomic mass of beryllium is 9.012182 u; I am bringing an old Kindle which is okay if it gets demolished; I don't have a dog; 25 pounds not counting food; blue.
See you on the trail.
