I'l be home by Christmas

I will be home for Christmas but I am leaving tomorrow. At 8 am in the morning neighbors Don and Lois Gerhardt are giving me a ride to Damascus VA and by noon I should on the Appalachian Trail headed northeast to Maine. The second post(March 10) that I made on this blog has a good interactive connection to a good National Parks Service Appalachian Trail map. My pack with food and water weighs 39.5 lbs. and includes my tent. My mail forward box weighs 50 lbs. but it has lots of food in it.Have a good spring, summer and fall. Cookymann
