    Got my pack packed and stuck in a dufflebag, flight boards at 5:40 in the morning, got an hour drive to the B'ham airport so it's up at 3:00, had some reservations about doing this hike but am ready to roll now, the body wont be any younger next year, I am carrying more weight than normal for me, luxury items, extra fuel for coffee each morning, wet butt wipes, hand wipes and I even have a Cohiba cigar to burn at trails end...just need to find a smooth sippin drink to go with it.
