getting there...

I've made my travel arrangements. Everything is set. My bus leaves from Orlando the morning of Feb. 28th and the hiker hostel will be picking me up when it arrives in Atlanta. I'll spend the night there, then they'll drop me off at the start of the approach trail the next morning. Officially starting my hike on Feb. 29th.

I realized that I have a zero degree sleeping bag, so I need to get a compression bag for that because with my early start date I can expect some cold weather.

I upgraded my backpack, I finally gave in and got a Golite Jam (it was on clearance for the end of the year, and thats pretty much the only reason other than it is only 1 lb 14 oz). Everything fits into it, and it's  really comfortable despite the fact that its a frameless pack.

I just got some insurance papers in the mail - I need to call them tomorrow and lower my coverage so that I'm not paying crazy amounts of money while I'm gone.

I'll post more when I have more to update, but that's all for now.
