Getting Ready…

This is is my first post on my Appalachian Trail Adventure blog. I’m thinking that today marks the official start on my glide path to a May 1st take off on the AT. Just returned from a great two week vacation. Week one was an expedition to the Galapagos Islands with Stephanie and many of our local Cooperstown friends. Week two was a great relaxing week in Florida with my sister Jane, Steve and Grandpa.

Beautiful Florida day

Yesterday was a nice hike up to Star  Field in the snow. Much warmer today with a hike to the back trails of Clark Tower with Stephanie.  It’s so nice to live in an area with lots of hills,  which is great  training for the AT
