My vacation was approved and I just made my flight reservation to Denver. Flying into Denver Sunday July 2 and hope to hit the trail the same day by late afternoon. I can not describe how excited I am, this was a far off dream a year ago that is now turning into reality. I would like to once again thank the members here for all the help and insight they have given me. I also look forward to meeting fellow hikers, trail angles and others along the CT. I will share in this experience on trail journals.com and here too.
