Ok, I've been doing day hikes since Jan as I slowly purchased my gear. This past Friday I added the final missing piece, the tent. Now I am ready to start doing an over night or two.

It's a good thing I have one of those collapsible wagons that "Hop along Cassidy" has always wanted to ride in. (I'm sensing a trail name here.) I might try to make it to the park tomorrow just to see how he could make that work.

Her trail name will be "The Sloth."

I was feeling pretty uncomfortable with the thought of doing something so good as hiking the AT and then nourishing with something not-so-good but very convenient so I did a little snooping and found a fabulous website that told me just
