The sky this morning as we left Louisiana

Well this is it. I am sitting at the Hiker Hostel in Dahlonega, Georgia with my Dad, sleepily writing this post. My pack is packed, I have all of my food necessary (I think), and all I really have to do is hangout until the morning.

I was fortunate enough to be able to spend some time with my Dad as he agreed to bring me up to the trail from home. We came a day early because he had to do something for work here. So last night we stayed in a La Quinta in Georgia and today we came out to this hostel near the start of the trail. Since we had plenty of time today we stopped at an REI in Northern Atlanta and then me and my Dad decided to go hike a beginning portion of the Appalachian Trail. You see a little over a year ago me and some friends of mine decided to come out to the AT for a 3 day weekend and we came right up near here to an area close to the start. So Since I have been on it before me and my Dad went for a quick walk just for fun. The weather has a slight chill to it and the views are nice. Im starting to get quite excited thinking about what I am about to undertake. Yet at the same time I am not even quite sure if I have processed it yet. Its all kind of crazy.
