Months of preparation and patience are over! Join me as I take my first of approximately five million steps on the AT. February 29th I departed from Amicalola Falls up the Approach Trail to the AT's southern terminus on Springer Mountain stopping to camp for the night at Stover Creek. March 1st I spent my first full day on the trail, stopping to camp at Gooch Mountain Shelter. March 2nd the rain came, and I took a relatively easy day making my way to camp at Lance Stream Camp.
This episode includes snippets from the thru-hiker registration and orientation class that every thru-hiker takes part in right before they depart. As well as another poem reading by Steph.
