Adventure time!

Z starts the AT today!

He's been pretty excited about it lately. When he was in the UK, we did even did a little bit of warmup hiking to get him ready. It was really rugged.

We even made sure to wear our sturdiest hiking boots, just to be safe.

In all seriousness though, he's been super tuned-in to anything hiking related these past several months. For example:

I was positively glowing after being proposed to [okay, maybe it was the flash], but all he could focus on was the poster in the background...

His current plan is stick to a strict budget (which wouldn't involve said "halt[s] at wayside inns for beer"), but we'll see how long that lasts :)

Come to think of it, the AT has been everywhere. Even when Z flew back to the 'States from his UK visit, the plane went right over Katahdin, the iconic final peak of the trail. Sa-weeeet! (although that snow doesn't look promising! Hopefully by July it won't be too much of an issue...)

Now, for your reading pleasure: 7 things you didn't know about the Appalachian Trail, via Time mag. (and Fact #2 has a relevant update, evidently)

To Katahdin!
