Appalachian Trail -

Today started off well, we got packed up quickly and on our way. We stayed our first three nights in Weverton parking lot which was very convenient since it was a central location right on the trail.

We ordered and received most of our gear online, Dion has planned as much as possible for what to expect. I am looking forward to heading out and actually experiencing the Appalachian Trail for myself. We are excited about our Coleman grill and griddle that came in yesterday. Since we will be slack packing the entire trip, some extra gear will come in very handy. This will...
