My Bags Are Packed – I’m Ready to Hit the Trail

The time has finally come for me to stop preparing and start hiking. I’m just a couple of days out from my OHT start date, and I couldn’t be more excited.

I think I’ve done everything that I can to make sure that this hike will be completed. I’ll be battling tough weather during the first few days, but if I can make it through that it should be smooth sailing the rest of the way.

For those of you who have been following along, thank you so much. It’s been fun writing about my preparation for this hike. I’m probably not going to write from the trail at all. The OHT is only 270 miles, so my aim is to finish it, then come back and write about the experience using some of my notes that I take along the way.

Until then, happy hiking. It’s going to be a ton of fun, I’m sure!
