On April 1, 2010 I will embark on a six month journey that I've dreamt about for years. My goal: Thru hike the Appalachian Trail, northbound, from Georgia to Maine. My inspiration: The love of nature and the silence that allows one to hear more than you could ever imagine. My budget: Shoestring. My anticipation: Immense. My heart: Full. There is a journey in everyone’s life ... this one is mine.
