Okay, so I pilfered this idea from hikers who have gone before me:
In an attempt to make it a little easier on my friends and family back home who are planning on following this ridiculous journey of mine, this quest of sorts; I have created a shortcut list of abbrevs and a brief definition of what the hell I'll be talking about as the journal presses on.
So, the Appalachian Trail. The mountainous frontier spanning 2,180 miles from Springer
I ended up going back to Walmart and picking up three journals for me and my sons, two backpacks, and a multi-tool. With this added to the tents that I purchased earlier, our first day of gear shopping has turned out pretty well. On Monday, I am going to order some sleeping bags and the Companion book.
Today is my first journal entry and I have waited until now for a reason. I wanted to wait until I began spending money on this trip, because only then would I know for sure that I was going to do this. Today, me and my sons went out and bought our tents for this trip. This thing seems to be coming together so quickly. I have talked about the Trail for a few months, but I just decided to do it THIS YEAR a few days ago. I have created our you tube account
