It was the last week of May. I was on vacation. The Devils had just scored in the playoffs. There I was, in a cramped Bar in Hoboken, NJ, and had enjoyed a (cough cough) few adult beverages.

So when my buddy Dan said, "I am thinking about hiking the Appalachian Trail, you interested?"

Well... how could I not blurt out "Incredible idea, Count Me In!"

Now, you gotta understand, I had never done anything close to this. The biggest hike I had done is from one end of Manhattan to another - stopping all along the way for food and snacks.

As such, there is no better picture to start with than this one. It's of Dan and I at the Friendly's Restaurant in Augsta, Maine just after getting off the Greyhound bus.

And so begins the sights of the 200+ mile Appalacian Trail treck.
