Fight or flight


Thursday.May.01.2008

Well folks. We've finally crossed the line of hypothetical. Too much planning and preparation has led us to the eve of our journey and, pending acts of god, it looks like this hike is going to happen. I'm ready to get on with it.

Ryan's plane arrives in Atlanta at 2 this afternoon. Brad Glick and I are going to welcome Ryan to the Big Peach. Mike Freed, our host, will be dropping us off at the trail head tomorrow morning.

Mike and Amy took me out for pulled pork and fried pickles last night. Respect the fried pickle. That's all I'm saying.

Ryan and I are on schedule to reach Franklin, NC the evening of May 8. Holly Herr will be picking us up there for a day of rest and recovery at her home in Sylva.

You know how the body gets all excited when something big is about to happen? I pooped twice already this morning. Fight or flight, baby. Fight or flight.
