Here are a few photos from one my training hikes. Sorry I haven’t posted as much lately both because of the family needs I posted about earlier. Thanks to everyone for their prayers for my brother he is healing ahead of schedule and should be able to walk again in a couple of months and because drum roll I have begun training hikes to get in shape to do a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. If you are not familiar with the trail it runs from Georgia to Maine 2180 miles. It takes most people 4-5 months to do. So hang with the blog and look for some great posts thru out this year and especially next year with posts from the trail. If any of you have hiked the trail or have experience with long distance back packing I would love to hear from you.
