So here we are at the Amicalola Falls Lodge, the day before it all begins. We ate a hearty dinner, met with friends who've successfully hiked the trail, and are now preparing to bed down for the night.
Packs have been packed (and repacked), weighed, and measured. Dog's fed, watered, and poo'd. Straps tightened, all systems go.
Tomorrow it begins.
To infinity, and beyond.
