March 14: Durham, NC (mile 0.0)

argh!!! i can’t wait to get going.

I have my starting gear list more or less finished, and I’ve done all the paperwork that I need to do for my Leave of Absense from work. Now I just want to get going!

I’m flying from Philadelphia to Atlanta approximately 163 hours from now (not that I’m counting or anything). From there I will get a shuttle to the Lodge at Amicalola Falls State Park. I will be hitting the trail on the morning of Thursday March 22nd. Woohoo!
