    Terri here-
    I knew at some point and time, I too, would have to put into words "WHY on earth would I want to hike this trail?"

    Dreamer here-

    As Terri & I approach the 90 day mark, the realities of a six month backpacking journey from Georgia to Maine are slowly coming into focus through the years of dreaming about this adventure.

    Dreamer here –


    Yes!! I was finally able to upload the first of five videos on my clothing and gear I have produced. Can anyone relate to “Learning Curve” here?
