Hello, I am a 55 year old semi-retired architect. In the last few years a couple close friends passed away and made me realize life is too short, and the time for adventure is now! I have decided to try to flip flop thru hike the Appalachian Trail starting the first week of April. My wife has graciously allowed me 6 months to complete the task. Follow along with me on the journey if you are wondering how fun / difficult / scary it is. As my carpenter says 'The only way to do it, is to get it done.'
