A HUGE shout out from the Midwest!

Hello everyone! My name is James and I am a born and raised Hoosier! I am a middle aged dreamer who seeks fun and adventure.  Starting at the end of March 2016 I will be taking my adventures to the Appalachian Trail.  I have been dreaming of hiking the AT for many years and about 2 1/2 years ago I started putting many hours into research, saving money, buying gear and obsessing over doing just that! I do not have a trail name but I am certain the trail will provide one for me.  I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know many of the people of the trail community.
