Countdown to Amicalola: A Dream of Spring

This is looking NOBO along the Appalachian Trail no more than a quarter mile from Newfound Gap. The trail goes up through the middle of that boulder, as there are some "stairs" carved into it. Rocks like this can give me a bit of trouble going down hill, although this one isn't that bad at all going up (which is what we'll be doing on our through hike).

With the result of this morning, I know stand at three days up and three days down. While I won't hit my goal of 5 days down and 2 up, I can still get a majority down week with a good result tomorrow. And beyond the daily counts, the three days I have been down on the whole have been better than the three days I was up. Unless I completely mess up today, I should still be down for the week.

This week I'm planning on working on getting my clothes and food down to a more manageable weight. At some point I should have all the clothing I need for the hike, which means I can dump the placeholders that are most likely heavier than the actual items. I'm also looking at dumping some of the initial food weight, as the snacks I can replace at Neels Gap.
