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
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
spare Clothes/ socks
my transporter (my bags, bag)
Counting down the days excitedly
