A friend asked what lead me to the Appalachian trail so i want to add this story to my journal .In 1975 when i was 10 me and my dog would spend hours in the woods behind my house .Mom would pack us lunch fill our canteen and we would be off on our adventures. One night my dad gave me a book it was trail guide to the Appalachian trail it was full of maps stories of the trail ,From that day forward me and my faithful dog would spend hours pretending we were on the trail .As a young man i hiked alot in the mountains of NH were i grew up . It was not till my late 40s when i would take my first sec hike on the trail in VA it was like no other hike .When i left that day all i wanted was to go farther see more of that magical trail .Now like many before me my quest is to become a thru hiker . I want to thank my mom and dad for without them inspiring me i may never found the Appalachian trail
