We now have a map! and this map will even have our location (every time we update it which should be decently often)!

Packing is going well. mostly done. We leave early in the morning, go up to Massachusetts and visit Caroline and her fam. Saturday we go up to our starting point and take it easy and relax. Sunday we hike up Mount Katahdin and on Monday we start the trek (hiking up Mount Katahdin is a day trip that goes North, but you do it to say you've done the whole thing).

Alright. so this is the last post (until we get back home) from the house. and we shall be stating soon enough!

Getting packed up, food has been got (Mrs. Alspaugh would have a fit if she saw me use "got" that way), and most of our necessities have been found/bought. heading out Friday early morning, supposedly going to be a get together on Thursday... but I do not know when where or how. I'll try to find out for those around the area that may be interested.

On a side note, if you want to meet up with us at some point along the trail, please find out where you would like to be notified and such that we will be around. Let us know who you are and your phone number too because sometimes comments and such appear as anonymous... and that does not help me much. well... I hope to see you on the trail!

oh, and on a final note, some quotes from 3 nights ago's dinner conversation. (to the best my memory can remember)
Andy: "I'm only afraid that we won't have enough food"
Matt: "Yeah, Jonathan does eat a lot"
Jonathan: "Andy's going to wake up in the middle of the night to the sound of the stove going, look out and see me sitting over the stove with a pot, and all the food for the rest of week laid out around me with the last spoonful in my mouth. He'll ask me what the hell I am doing and I'll say 'But I'm hungry!'"
Andy: "And if that happens I'm going to buy some honey and wait for you to fall asleep then pour it all over your hammock for the bears to eat you"

peace out world!

So, the background is Mount Katahdin. This is the starting point for our trek. This means we are starting in Maine and hiking south bound (SoBo) ending in Georgia.
