David and I have been busy honing in our gear selection, familiarizing ourselves with trail conditions & water sources. There are so many aspects to planning a thru-hike that it can feel overwhelming at times... But the excitement of the prospect always prevails & we just keep plugging away at planning. I think if we can survive the planning stage that it will be half the battle! Okay, maybe not half but at least we will be setting ourselves up for success when we finally get to embark on our journey. We are grateful that everything is in forward motion and are counting the days until our feet will be too!
