Ladies and Gentlemen, it is a meer 3 hours before I begin my drive to Amicalola Falls to start my Thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail.  Why am I not asleep you ask?  I keep finding things I need to do last minute.  The above photo is an inventory of everything I will be carrying on my back.  I'm a little nervous because with 5 days of food and 2L of water, my pack comes out to be 40.4 pounds...that is not including my camera....and camcorder.   I keep thinking of things I  could take out, but nothing comes to mind.   I didn't pack junk, yet 40.4 LBS??  yowza.  I'm sure I'll settle things out the first week. 

Let me go and tweak my pack some more.
