Walker

Hi, I'm Walker. I am a retired Navy pilot from Atlanta. As a kid I spent a lot of time in the North Georgia mountains, not far from Springer Mountain. When I was in the Navy I always joked that when I retired I was going to grow a ponytail and hike the Appalachian Trail. Well, the ponytail isn't happening but I am going to start my AT thru-hike in April 2013. I hope you'll follow me and the other bloggers on the Appalachian Trials Blog.
