I now have confirmed transportation from Gainesville, GA to Amicalola Falls State Park, where I will begin my hike at the foot of the approach trail.
I'll be meeting an old online friend, Michael, in Gainesville, whom I haven't actually seen in person in about forever. We'll do breakfast, and then head over to Amicalola, where he'll hike part of the approach trail with me, so I'm definitely going to be off to a good start.
Just over two weeks until I leave, and still a lot of work to do, both prep for AT and other stuff. But still, I'm pretty excited about this!
