Pre-Trail Jitters



I fly to Florida today!  


My hostel is booked for a few nights of relaxing in Miami, and then I head into the Big Cypress swamp, with about 10 other thru-hikers.  At least there will be some other nuts on the trail with me.  🙂

This hike will end up being about 1,100 miles, and will hopefully finish in the beginning of March.  At the Northern Terminus, I’ll dance on the beach, and fling my hiking poles into the sea. It will mark the end of a year long 3,000+ mile adventure.


Then what?


There’s a wonderful life waiting for me: a fluffy cat that wants to be loved, a job in a hospital that needs me, and hopefully, AT trail maintenance weekends.



See you on the other side of the swamp!  In the meantime, here are some photos from recent adventures in Lebanon, Greece, and Pennsylvania (sorry, lots of cat pictures!):
