47 days until my gear list is complete.

57 days until I leave my job.

73 days until I start the Approach Trail of my Appalachian Trail thru-hike.

I will begin as a solo NOBO (northbound) thru-hiker in March of this year with a 25 lb pack strapped to my back and no real plan except to walk for the next half of a year.

Crazy? I think so.

Amazing? I think so.

Cheers to that!
