It's amazing how much a difference music makes while hiking. The first day, I didn't listen to anything because I was going to do at least one day of "pure" hiking. The second day was rainy and so short that I didn't bother, and I couldn't find my ear buds on the third.

... to do so in my previous posts. I met Will while working at Gearhead Outfitters in Shreveport. He was born in California, moved to DC, and then spent the majority of his life in Austin Texas (he's been all over the place). I mentioned the AT one day after work and told him (half-jokingly) that he should come with me. Well, he took it to heart and actually considered the offer. I wrote him off, not ...
