We have a start date! (Progress Update #2)

Kind readers,

Eleven months, a birthday, and one terminated job later… I have returned to update you on my progress.

Firstly, an announcement: I am officially shooting for the 15th of February 2018 to begin my NOBO thru hike of the Appalachian Trail (that means that as of today, February 14th, 2017, it’s a year and a day until my adventure begins. Being a fairy tale-obsessed romantic I find this fact extremely satisfying). I’ve postponed beginning college until the following Autumn.

Secondly, I’m signed up to attend a meetup for a backpacking group this Saturday! It’s a dinner, not a hike, but they have a speaker who thru hiked last Spring and I’ll have a chance to meet everyone and get my toes wet. Other than a few odd purchases here and there this is my first substantial step into the world of backpacking. I’m excited and I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Thirdly and finally, I’ve begun Taekwondo and I’m attending classes three to four times a week. That’s not particularly significant in terms of physical training but it’s a step in the right direction.

Until next time,
