    Hello Fellow Hikers!

    I am from Newnan GA area and have been lurking about on the forum for a while.
    It occurred to me that I should pull the trigger and request to join the forum and glean even more knowledge from recent thru and/or section hikers about several aspects of the sport.

    In 1998, I completed a thru hike of the AT and due to something called life; I didn’t touch the Treadway for another 20+ years.

    My support team/sweetheart/friend/wife says I have been spending an inordinate amount of surfing on You Tube etc. to learn about all the changes in gear and permits and guidelines, etc. She’s been saying I suffer from OCD for 35 years.
    Despite this observation, when I did my thru, my base weight was 30 pounds and load out close to 45. Yikes – that was considered a lightweight backer then – but I must have been a hulk. Finished in Baxter with base of 20 pounds, but still ridiculous…

    Recently, the bug bit me again and I’m ready to resume!
    HOWEVER, about four weeks ago, I weighed 223 pounds (neckid), and was way out of shape. So, I joined WW and have dropped 8 pounds. I need to hit the walking circuit and regain some serious mobility and in short order, I can “do the trail” again…..

    It’s time to reclaim my trail moniker – VIKING – and a lot more.

    Completing a thru-hike has been a dormant seed deep in my conscious since I was a teenager in the 1970s. Joining WhiteBlaze is one virtual step in making that dream a reality and as a resource for planning a thru-hike sometime in the future. At this point, I don't know when that will happen. The earliest it seems likely at this point is 2027. A very long time in the future indeed. Should give me plenty of time to prepare physically and plan logistically. Please, visit my blog if you are curious about my journey into the future.
