Our Plans As of Right Now

So as you probably know Connor and I will be hiking the entire Appalachian Trail, taking us until mid-October or so. However, to start our adventure we will have some company. Eric, Dustin, Ryan, and Emily will be our traveling companions for a couple of weeks while we get settled into our new transient lifestyle. We will leave from Centerville on the 2nd of June, drive the ~8 hours to Harpers Ferry, WV and with some tricky logistical work we will leave vehicles at the predetermined exit point for our comrades to get home. They will take all the vehicles leaving Connor and I to set off on our own. We will hike until the trail ends in Maine then hitchhike or tele-port or something back to Harpers Ferry, turn around and head south till the trail ends in Georgia, ie "flip-flopping". Aside from some advanced online gear purchases, this is literally the extent of our planning for the next 5 months. Do we know how we are getting back to Harpers Ferry from Maine? No. Do we know how to get home from Georgia? No. Honestly I don't even have the trail guide I ordered yet, but whatever, Lewis and Clark didn't have no stinkin' trail guide either. Lack of planning is what makes it an adventure right?

Basically, I'm gonna walk the Caine in "Kung Fu". Walk from town to town, meet people, get in adventures.
