When you are planning on hiking distance while carrying your life supply, it is important to consider things you may not think about in advance when you are shopping around for that tent or sleeping bag. Price is normally the first thought. Then where to purchase stuff. How to carry it. Do I have everything? What are the others bringing? You know the feeling, don't you?
On March 10, 2017, myself and two other "over 45" women began our section hike through Georgia. We had big plans. Mighty big plans! In fact our plans were so big, if they were edible, we could say our eyes were bigger than our stomach
You've made the decision, and set the date! Or maybe you are still in the hypothetical imaginary 'oh crap, I might do this' phase -- which by the way, means you have committed subconsciously and now your conscience mind is catching up. Your heart is beating faster, and there's a funny feeling in your stomach. Also... you feel really happy. Sound right?
