Ben got a haircut!!

My little brother Ben finally got a haircut. His hair had been really long and kind of icky looking. Now he got it cut to a good length. I'll post updated pictures of us boys soon.

Getting excited

It's December now two days before Christmas. I am really excited to see what new gear I got from santa. I started out trying not to spaz out about the hike, but my dad has ordered a whole bunch of books from the library on hiking. The more people keep mentioning it the more my excitement level goes up.

Dad's first post

O.K. Let's get this blogging thing going! It' 3 weeks until Christmas and we are really all trying to focus on that, but THE HIKE is really starting to loom large on the horizon. Santa knows the the young men are going and will surely bring supplies on Christmas morning. Our book shelf is full of library books focusing on all things hiking and Appalachian trail related. Tammy and I wish we could all go but that of course is not possible for a myriad of reasons that lamenting about will not change.
A thru hike is definitely on our Bucket List. We are looking at flying them to Orlando for a few days with their Grandparents and then on to Georgia to start the hike. There are very reasonable cost flights down there. Yet nothing is final. Well gotta run for now. H

What's New

Here we are in December now with us averaging about 2 and half miles every time we hike. Not much is going on except for preparing for Christmas and the great gifts for hiking we hope to receive.

Hey it's me Ben again, our family -Nick just got back from a week in Williamsburg and while we were there we went to Busch Gardens and it rained, but the lines were short the whole day and Tom and I got to go on Apollo's Chariot about 6 times. Other than that, we went for two days at colonial Williamsburg learning about the history of Virginia. Until next week, have fun.

Hey this is Tom. Ben is actually mistaken he is 6'2" not 6'4" :P it's still hard calling him my little brother though.

Hi, my name is Benjamin and im 14 with a height of 6 foot 4 inches and a shoe size of 15. This blog was recently created by my family as in an attempt to support us with our plan of going on the Appalachian Trail. I am looking forward to our future trip next year onto the trail. I have been researching it for about two weeks now and I have found out many things, if any of you want to give us any tips or a story of yourself on the AT, just create an account and post something. Thank you and have a nice day.

First Post

Hello everybody. This is Nick. I put up a profile picture. Not really sure what to say, we had the first meeting just to begin planning last week. Right now we are researching Springer Mountain, the starting point of the trail. We have also begun looking into equipment that we will need for the trail and what we already have. Thats all for now. I hope to post more soon. Nick
