I apologize for the lack of updates, but I'm finding it difficult to find internet access along the trail. Because of that I will now do an 'monster update'.
20 March 2012
Today I was the second hiker of spring to sign the Springer Mountain registry... L-Dog being the first.
Here I met Jason (DarkAge), Partick (Damn Yankee), and Doug (The Doug). The last two I will not see much of since they are monster hikers.
This is the plaque at Springer Mountain symbolizing the official start of the Appalachian Trail.
The crew. The man staring you down is Damn Yankee. He wears American flag shorts and hikes 5X my speed.
This is DarkAge. I'm sure he'll appreciate this.
