The Night Before

So it’s almost 10:30 the night before I catch my flight down to Atlanta. I spent the whole day running around like a lunatic getting last minute things. Steve Olson came over for dinner last night to answer tons of my questions (as well as my Mom’s). Steve did the trail last year, and has been invaluable to me as I’ve been preparing for this trip. Thanks dude.

So I had to pick up a few last minute things in order to take into account Steve’s advice. I went to REI (twice), the foodstore, and a couple other places I can’t remember. After all that, I packed up my pack, and came in a bit over 25 pounds, which I’m pretty happy with. I can probably lose some once I get out there. But I’m very happy to start out at sub-30. Here’s a picture of me as I was finishing up packing everything up, and then my pack and the stuff I’ll wear tomorrow.





So that’s that. I guess I’m ready to go! Sorry this post was a little rushed, but it’s getting late and I need sleep! I’ll update when I can, I’m hoping within the next week or so. Talk to you guys soon!
