SQLHiker’s Hiking Gear

In February though March 2010 I hiked the Georgia section of the Appalachian Trail (AT) alone. Learned alot about me and who I wanted to be. When I got back I learned my first son Mason was going to be born in 9 months. Now Mason is 3 years old and we live only a few miles from where I was hiking. Trail life is fun, hard and rewarding; like life. Happy trails.

Just wanted to share my gear for the AT travelers thinking about doing it some day.
