Appalachian Trail in Georgia

Designed for. It is ok though, I will be in town in a few days and I will send somethings home. I ran into a guy today 63 years old with a 42 lb bag. He and I talked for a while because he was in the same situation I am in.... to heavy a bag. He wants to get his down to about 30lbs in next town. I just want to below the bags design wt-40lbs. I told him that I hope I am still able to do this at 63 and he replied with "I hope you are smarter than this at 63". I also ran into itrod again (he had ran out of water also. I have meet another hiker, chopper, and both yesterday and today he was just sitting in the middle of the trail. I guess he hikes till he worn out and instead of looking for a rock or log, he just flops right on the trail.
I think I may have picked up my trail name today also....Mississippi. Well it is about my bedtime. Hope all of you are doing well.
What Iearned today..that a 2 legged tripod not good. it broke today. the good news is it is 1/3 lighter.

Mississippi, I read about your journey on Gene's Page and decided to follow along electronically. Since I will never do what you are doing, nor see what you are seeing, you are giving me the gift of your eyes and insights. Thanks and pace yourself.

Looks like it's going to be a beautiful hike. I wish I had the guts to attempt it! Keep posting pics of the beautiful scenery and hang in there. Before long you'll have all your equipment situated the way you need it and as time goes it will get easier. By the way, I got your blog address from your dad on Gene's Page.

Nice pictures. Since you are through hiker 86, what time period does the other 85 cover?
