Expensive, exciting, exhilarating



The Appalachian Trail has moved a step closer


Flight to Atlanta   booked, I am flying in  on the 9th April,


Hotel in Dahlonega Booked


Hiking Insurance   Paid


This may be optional for some people but maybe I am older and wiser

I am hiking in the elements for  up to six  months , hopefully  I  will make  it without incident.
But in the event of an issue I am covered, 5 million for hospitalisation , Repatriations and of course   Search & rescue, again it’s something I hope never to use

From the airport i plan to grab the Marta to North springs.Marta

This  is as far as my planning goes, as I need to get to my hotel in Dahlonega from this station. I will ponder than once I  am on the train.

What am I brining?

I  am  bringing  my  Pack  with all my  gear  in  plus my bounce box

I am bringing a bounce box as I am from the  UK so  don’t have the luxury  of  help  in the US. I  will use it  until  I no longer need  it . Yes I could buy these items  in the US  But as the contents of my  box were acquired Free  I  will use  it.
To make  my box  cost effective I will use Post offices, again these can be a pain due to their opening hours. But then if I  do not need anything  I will not  have to pay again.

My Bounce box is a 9 litre Tough box containing

Two pairs of trail runners
Spare head torch & battery
few treats
spare Clothes/ socks
my transporter (my bags, bag)

Counting down  the  days excitedly
