Right where we left off in 2020 in the Shenandoah National Park!

We start our trip by flying into Charlottesville in Central Virgina (from MI and TN) and taking a shuttle to the trail head. A shuttle from a great person, Ashley. Her and her husband Scott run a great shuttle service. Thanks Ashely and Scott!

So, how does any hike start?.....that first step.......and we will take many steps thru 4 states this year!

Most all backpackers, especially long distance backpackers, are asked (and even ask themselves); "Why do you/I do it? Why do you/I LASH the AT? Well......... MacGyver and I will share our thoughts and opinions on that throughout this years Blog adventure!

Why are we long distance hiking the AT?

"Life at a very basic and clear level that tunes out all the “noise and craziness” of what is going on in the world. “You walk, you sh*t/p**, you eat, you sleep, you repeat…....AND you enjoy the pure adventure of the hike".
