Time has ticked down, massive TODO lists are mostly checked off. Time to hit the road! We leave today via ferry, then a red-eye flight to NYC, change airports and then off to Bangor, Maine tomorrow morning. We have a bunch of errands to run in Bangor, before we catch a bus to near the start of the trail. From there, we’ll be picked up by the AT Lodge shuttle, and stay with them for the night, and finally start the trail on Friday, June 5th!
Once we get hiking, we’ll be writing entries with pictures daily, but they may get posted a little less often than that. You can also check out this map of the Appalachian Trail, which will get updated with a marker every time we post a journal entry!
