2017 AT NOBO. Did normal stuff up until this point in life, college, job for 5ish years, and other assorted marginally interesting stuff. Born near the Blue Ridge Mts in VA and spent a lot of time wandering around the AT and other hiking trails. Plan is to head north early April. http://www.hikefor.com/Chris_G/AT/2017
