Several months ago, I decided to attempt a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail this summer. In 2005 I was fortunate enough to hike the southern 1/3 of the trail, about 730 miles from Georgia to mid-Virginia. I’ve had a hankering to get out there again. A while ago I gave notice at the library where I work. My last day there is the 10th, and I’ll be hitting the trail on the 15th. (!)
So, you can expect things to get a little sluggish here between now and the 15th as I put final touches on my preparation. And after that, mlarson.org will be on a little hiatus. With health, patience, and a bit of luck, I should be back sometime in late July or early August with a photo of me smiling on Katahdin.
I’ll miss you.
