Highlander's 2021 AT Thru-Hike

Day -1 for epic hike of the Appalachian Trail. My wife Shelley and I hike the East Ridge Trail, The AT approach at Amicalola Falls, saw the lower Amicalola Falls Ovservation, Top of the Falls, and did my At check-in with Ranger Bob. Everything looks good to go for my official start tomorrow morning.

When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.” —Winnie the Pooh

I can't believe the day is finally here. A year of planning. It will be extremely difficult to say good bye to Shelley. She has done so much for me and I can't thank her enough.

One last evening at the lodge and I'll be off. I hope I can get to sleep this evening. In pins and needles for sure.

Looking forward to the world beyond.
