On this day last year I began the AT. Happy "March Forth" (get it)! I was planning on including some of my choice pictures from the trek alas the computer is still down so youll just have to wait until next year.
I enjoyed the hike and wish I could have finished it. I think there is something about me that is inclined to simple jobs. My job when backpacking was to walk, my job now is to do good. Hiking is similar to living in my village in other ways too: pit toilets, extended periods between bathing, walking everywhere. Ill certainly be well seasoned to give it another go when I get back. Hurray for backpacking!
