It has been an interesting 10 years in Denver, but it's time for a change. My best relaxation and healing takes place in the outdoors, and I have many friends and relatives on the East Coast, so the Appalachian Trail was the logical choice.
This will be my longest expedition to date, so I am excited to see how well my trip planning skills will scale up. Being a computer-oriented geek, all of my plans reside in one giant spreadsheet. It's absurd. Everything from the itinerary to a contacts list is there.
At this point, most of my planning is complete. I've nearly obtained all needed gear, and the final phase is to source food supplies.
My main focus at this time is to wind up my affairs in Denver. Just a month and change to go!
