It's here!

I got a great deal on it. Thanks to my REI 20% off members coupon. Hopefully I will get to load it up with my gear soon. I went with the Ospery Atmos 65. It's classified as a lightweight pack, coming in at 3 pounds 13 oz, and a capacity of 4,200 in cubic inches.

The First Blog

Hello world!

As you my already know... I'm planning to hike the entire Appalachian Trail Georgia to Maine, this coming spring. My estimated date of departure is February 29, 2012 ['cause you can only start your thru-hike on a leap day once every four years]. 

I am just starting to get the ball rolling on this blog, there is a lot more content to come. Originally, I was going to just use this as a blog and use a website for all sorts of information about my hike, but since Blogger has the great "Pages" feature I will be using this for all information pertaining to my Appalachian Trail thru-hike!
