    and thats it....

    I leave on March the 12th... just got to keep working and save as much money as possible im looking at having about $4,500 but im 8th of a Jew so i know i can squeeze my budget even tighter over the next few weeks( living off of 60 bucks a week already)

    So... Ya,... lol I dont Know what to do with my remaining time.
    Im so ready for the trail, ordinary life just feels like its in my way.
    I want to be out there, this none AwesomeHiking time is getting in my way!
    I find my self staring at the Calendar way to often to be normal lol
    Pre-trail Blues or some thing?!?!

    I decided to do this a year ago.... why all of the sudden is it driving me up a wall to wait one more month? :/

    Same boat. Only working 3 days a week to kill all my unused vacation time so a lot of extra time to spare before my hike (which also begins the 12th)!

    You're gonna love that eTrex20. Don't really need it for the AT but fun just the same. I traded up from an old Legend model. The 20 is so much faster acquiring and holding sat signals.

    Cheers!

    I think I was better at waiting for Christmas to arrive at 5 yrs of age! I completely understand your excitement and anticipation.

    No onesi religion makes you what you are...its you who makes yourself what you are as well as your Ethnic background. The reason why you have the "blues" is because your anxious to start A.S.A.P and each day will feel like a week...and so on and so forth. Its the mentality of us Christians waiting for Christmas to arrive...until you reach the age to where you cant wait until its over.
