Hello!! My name is Chris and I plan on hiking the AT starting on March 14 2021....assuming the world doesn't end before then. I am currently wrapping up a 24 year career in the Coast Guard and will be using the AT to springboard me back into the real world. I currently live in Rhode Island (Go Rhody) and will be moving back to South Florida after the hike.
Things don't always work out as planned.
It's time to take the next 5-6 months to define who I am and who I want to be.
Life is about to change quickly and drastically.
Planning for any long trail thru hike requires some forethought for most individuals. For me, it comes down to the numbers and how best to maximize them for success on the trail.
Hiking a Long Distance Trail seems to be on everyone's bucket list. However, not many people can pull away from society to quest out on this endeavor. This is an introduction post into myself, who is lucky enough to pull away from society for the next 6 months.
