Headed out hikin'

I've turned in my grades and been drying food and packing stuff to head off for the summer... I will sleep on the Appalachian Trail near Springer mountain Georgia this Sunday evening (April 27). Then on Monday I should have gotten on top of Springer Mtn and the official start of the Appalachian Trail. Sharon and I were here in March, 1972 on a wet wet rainly day. (see Sharon here in "pauncho"--the latest rain gear at the time... We started north from here to do the bottom thousand miles of the AT.
I won't get that far this time--I only have a month or so... 300-350 would be a good total.

I will return from the AT in time to go to the Wesleyan General Conference June 7-11. I should check my email next that week.
