NOT. While Chili may be ready to hike, he’s definitely no “Buck”!! I’m just hoping he isn’t intimidated by a rabbit, let alone a bear.
We leave Thursday for our long drive to Waynesboro, VA, the southern entrance to the Shenandoah section of the AT. From there we hike to Front Royal, VA, the northern entrance, and a total of 107 miles. I’ve worked on the injured leg for the last couple months and I’m pretty hopeful that it shouldn’t give me too many troubles. To be honest, I’m more concerned about “crap car” making it the 2000 miles. Send positive car vibes, please!
I’m excited to get back on the trail after slaving away on the house. Looking forward to carrying a lighter pack (by 7lbs), cool mornings, a breath of fresh air, maybe catching some changing leaves, and of course, chalking off another section!
