   Hmmm.....I'm due to retire in......26 years.  I want to hike the 
AT in the year 2021.   I guess I need to start planning my strategy 
now on how to convince my wife that a six-month stint on the AT is a 
good idea.  :-)

Be sure to keep us posted on your progress on the AT!   "Trip 
journals" are a great way for us to enjoy (vicariously) the AT
