Heading down south to the land of the pines
The title was a blatant steal from Bob Dylan (don’t sue me).
Am I prepared? I think so? Am I nervous? I think so? The pack is weighing in around 30 pounds. A little more then I wanted, but I need those extra few pop tarts and I couldn’t leave the neck pillow behind (edit: the neck pillow got left behind).
Now to some serious talk. Over the past few weeks I have realized how great my family and friends really are. Everyone has been super supportive and I really do appreciate every bit of it. So kudos to me for finding great friends and being born into a loving family. Proof, this cake that my Aunt got for me.
So details for all who want those: flying to Atlanta at 5:40 Sunday Morning (April 3rd) Getting a ride to Amicalola Lodge (thanks Josh). Staying the night at the lodge. Start hiking first thing Monday morning (April 4th).
