Well. What to say. Today sucked a little. I know a thruhike is difficult and that I sometimes need to “embrace the suck” and just enjoy whatever the trail brings me … but that’s tough to do if I can’t get to the trail.
After boarding my 7am flight in LA, we had electric problems and were forced off at 9am. Then, after 2 more hours of waiting we were re-scheduled for a 3pm flight that arrived in ATL at 9pm. So … long story short, I sat frustrated at the airport, missed my shuttle to Amicalola Falls, and left Keg waiting in at the airport all day. The Captain had a late flight too, so we eventually got a rental car and arrived at Amicalola around midnight.
Oh, and did I mention it’s raining?
But all is good now. Just the first of many tests I suppose. With today’s problems behind me, I am enjoying a warm bed at Amicalola Falls Lodge and ready for tomorrow’s 8.8 mile hike up the approach trail to Springer Mountain. With the new day will bring a new attitude and a fresh start to adventure. Hello Neiman!
