Walking and Talking: An Appalachian Trail Thru-Hike

Mar 3, 2020

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.
