Appalachian Trail Thru Hike 2014

This year I've decided to walk the entire length of the appalachian trail all at once. It's going take months to complete the 2,185 mile journey from Georgia to Maine. I've wanted to thru hike the appalachian trail for a long time and it's becoming a reality! I've quit the job and am in the process of moving out of my apartment in Chicago. I'll start the trail from Georgia in March.

It's been a hard decision to put my career on hold. I worked at a great company in Chicago. Stopping the flow of income, leaving about everything I know in Chicago, has made this choice difficult. But I've made the choice, and I am very excited to begin. It's going to be a long walk.

I mention this here because I'll be posting updates of my journey along the trail. I'll attempt to post at least once a week, but only time will tell how that goes.
