The Final Countdown

Hiker food

The typical fare out on a thru-hike: pop-tarts, bars, and Lipton noodles

It is starting to feel real. We are in the final days before the trail in Charleston, SC with Matt’s sister, Emily and her husband Matt and two boys, Austin and Aiden. We made a trip to the Piggly Wiggly this afternoon for a few items, including the all important Ramen Noodles.

We leave for the trail on Friday, to camp with Emily and the boys before officially starting the walk on Saturday. Right now it’s just making the lists of to-dos, groceries and other random things before leaving. Aptly fitting for the Piggly Wiggly theme, but we’ve put on a few extra pounds while being at home with family in Ohio. I’ve enjoyed an extra piece of chocolate cake here and there, knowing I’ll be walking it off soon.
