Well, I got bold and put on my backpack (not the one I'm taking for the AT - still have to get that, but my old one), stuffed it with old sleeping bags and started cruising around the neighborhood. We have some pretty good hills for working out. Had one guy stop literally next to me in his car and simply stare before driving on. But I figure they will all get used to it soon enough. When I can get on a trail, that will be good, but this works for that after dinner, weekday work-out. All I think about is those notorious Georgia Mtns.
