    Default 2009

    Presently planning a 2009 GA->ME thru hike. I have sectioned hiked approx 1100 miles of the trail with the most recent being last year. Last year I hiked approx 475 miles of it with my brother, Iceman(GA -> ME thru hiker 2007). We grew up right near the trail and we had always talked about thru hiking it. Last year was the best opportunity for him and unfortunately the worst time for me. So I am looking to 2009 to be my opportunity.

    2009 is NOT that far off
    so now is the time to start the plans and the conditioning to get ready for the task at hand.

    Trail Name: Montana Mac

    This thru-hike has been on my calendar for years and is now fast approaching. Unfortunately it is not yet on my wife's calendar, so whether or not it is really going to happen is still in doubt a bit. This will be resolved one way or the other soon. Sigh...

    I can't wait as I've been wanting to do this since I was about 15. Quitting my job 6 months earlier than planned before going back to school will be easy since I've wanted to quit since I started, and my boyfriend is taking a leave of absence (he can register himself). I can't believe I'm finally going to do this...2009 seems like it will never get here.

    Wish me luck! "why are you doing this? they asked. Its like trying to explain the color purple to a blind person. The feeling was so sublime, so serene, so personal. In the woods, i found hope, peace, healing; no matter how sour my mood, the woods seemed always to soothe me, resurrect sagging spirits. In the woods, there was a sense of being at home, of being where I ought to have been all along." -david brill, as far as the eye can see
