Flew down from Maine today to Atlanta, arrived safe and sound. Shuttle picked a few of us up from the northernmost MARTA station in north Atlanta and drove us to the Hiker Hostel in Dahlonega.
The hostel is extremely nice. Very well maintained and comfortable. There are quite a few hopefuls staying at the hostel tonight, everyone's anxious and excited to start hiking.
Just finished splitting a pizza with one of the guys. Looking forward to getting a solid night's sleep before hitting the trail tomorrow.
