Our bags our packed, we’re ready to go…

Well were not leaving on a jet plane but embarking on a 25+ hour, quality time inducer with the ‘rents tomorrow morning at 0600. Wahoo!

So here are some rambling thoughts we are having:

-The distance by car from Dahlonega, GA to Baxter St Park, ME  is 1,388.54 according to map quest. We will be hiking 2,184.2 miles. Obviously it isn’t a straight shot.

– The weather in Atlanta for Wednesday(the day we start) shows 76 degrees and rainy. Awesome.

– We are attempting to take a bit of Schmeckfest on the trail by bringing knepp for the first supper. It will be interesting to see if we get any comments.

– We will not be checking facebook and email very often so you will be much more likely to receive a reply if you send us real letters. Let’s help out the postal system!

– Have you noticed how the same letters are in TRAIL as there are in TRIAL? Food for thought.

We will try to blog one more time before hitting the trail. We thank you again for all your thoughts, prayers and support throughout this journey. This is what a year of planning has come to!

Here we go!

    Something to remember: temperature changes with elevation–about 5 degrees for every 1000 feet. So, the temp in the mountains will be cooler than in any of the towns. You guys are going to do great!
