How this works...

If you have visited before, you will notice that there has been a change of format.  Partly for aesthetic purposes, but also to try a more interactive approach.  In this format, I will still be able to post from the Trail, but you will also be able to make comments on my posts and what I hope will be amazing photographs (even though I'm only bringing the lightweight Cannon Powershot and not the great-- but heavy-- Nikon.)  

A word about comments.  When you post a comment, please keep in mind that I have young nieces and nephews that will be following my Adventure and reading these comments.  So please be prudent.  And to my nieces and nephews... I would also appreciate you being on your best behavior, as I have many massage and personal training clients, as well as students and friends all following along.

Having said that, please feel free to have fun and enjoy the Trail with me.  Also, at the bottom of the page there will be an inspirational quote and picture that will change daily (or possibly on each refresh of the page.)  

I am in the process of squeezing all the gear I have acquired into my pack... I will post a photo of that process before I leave for D.C.  And then I will post again from D.C. and once more from the base of Springer Mountain in GA.  From there I will be at the mercy of internet access and cell phone service.  But I will post as often as possible.  

Feel free to add yourself to the list of people "Following" this blog.  Enjoy!

Peace and Love,


  1. Nick - Thank you so much for "sending US off" with such a fantastic memory. Even though YOU are the one leaving us for 6(ish) months. Quite literally, you have proven that, once again, you are the wind beneath our wings. And, yes, Virginia, there are good men out there (or was that there is a Santa Claus??). I do love you so much. I hope that new cell package include text messaging. You know those baby sisters can't be trusted NOT to text. ha ha ha.

    I am going to try not to have any nervous breakdowns in the stairwell while you are gone, because I don't know what I will do without you.

    I love you so much!!!!!

    Your Baby Sister, Tracy-Lee

  2. Hello Nick,
    Thanks for calling me on your way out to the starting point of your adventure. Take care of that leg and don't over do. You have lots of people who love you and support you so carry that with you. I know you don't want anymore weight but love is lifting you not weighing you down. Can't wait for your next entry. XOXO Mom
