Day 1
– Arrived in Atlanta.
– Rented car, went to Starbucks, made last minute REI stop, and drove 2 hours to our hotel in north Georgia.
– Navigated way to trailhead; involved 1 1/2 hours of unmarked gravel United States Forest Service roads and 3 roadside pee stops.

Day 2 (Today)
– Hiking starts in earnest, and the trail mix hits the fan. Seriously. Some stuff goes down, and I completely lose my sh*t – literally and figuratively. Stay tuned for the next post.

    Enjoy your journey and sorry we couldn’t meet in SEA. In Vietnam at the mo, going out to buy motorbikes this afternoon to follow the HCM Trail north to Hanoi.

      Evan,

      Small world; we’ll meet one of these days. Jealous of the HCM Trail. Be safe and wear a freaking helmet 😉 !

      Lucie
