    Default Put in My Notice Today

    I just told my boss my last day of work will be February 28. I hit the approach trail on March 22. It's officially official! Woo hoo! Good luck to all of you quitting your jobs in the coming weeks. It's scary but feels so liberating once it's done!

    Best of luck to you. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other - It's only 5 million steps, give or take a few
    The AT - It has it's ups and downs...

    Good for you! Any future bosses will have to make do with a new and improved you after this experience. May your time on the trail reward you greatly for your well wishes and adventurous spirit. Pretty sure it will,.

    Excellent, all the best and enjoy!!! Hope to see you out there, I hit the approach 3 days after you. Just left my job on Cayman Islands to do this - just got back to US today to get some semblance of trail legs back beforehand.

    Good luck on your hike. You may bump into Comet Omega. He's starting earlier than you and he's from Austin as well. Give Austin another good showing this year. Hook 'em!! (Or should I say, "Hoof 'em")

    Curious if they knew it was coming or if you sprung it on them?

    Enjoy!

    Congrats! I remember doing the same. What a great feeling.

    My bosses didn't know about my plans, but I gave them four weeks notice so that we could start interviewing for my position and hopefully make a smooth transition.
