    :banana !!! :)

    i sold my truck tonight. that was the last thing standing between me and the AT. now i've got roughly two weeks-ish so i can put in my two weeks' notice and then haul all my stuff back to mississippi to keep it at my mama's house.

    i'm kind of in shock. i'm really thru-hiking this year? =D

    ya know, two weeks notice is just a term, you can give them just about any notice to hire another employee, but two weeks is deemed to be adequate time to train a monkey to do your job.

    Warnings have been poster along the AT

    The trouble I have with campfires are the folks that carry a bottle in one hand and a Bible in the other.

    See my signature. I did my thru last year, and can't stop thinking about the AT. I am leaving college at the end of April, and doing springer-HF and back, after that, who knows? I am getting rid of everything I own besides backpacking gear, gonna drive my car down to Dalton, the last thing I own, have it crushed for scrap, and literally everything I own will be in my pack. I will give my comp to a friend. I might see you on the trail.

    Congrats! I might see you out there then. I leave in about a week. Sold my car two days ago and I think I'm finally squared away on the equipment front. Just have to wait now...and wait...and wait. Come on already!!

    Default Update needed

    Stonedflea,
    You need to update your profile details from "Year of thru-hike: 2011?" to
    "Year of thru-hike: 2011!"

    Congrats and good luck.

    I know the feeling, sold my car last month, have been borrowing my moms car to get back and forth from work. And I have only a few days left before I'm in Atlanta.

    Everything I own is in storage and everyone thinks I'm crazy to take time off to thru hike.

    Seems a lot of people are the same kind of crazy.

    Good luck, have fun.
