I was really going to do the A.T. This was a truly monumental moment. The feelings and emotions overwhelmed me. The thought of being true to who I was inside was something I could not compare to anything in life to this point. All the preparations to this moment seemed surreal, however that day they started to come true. I was scared, anxious, nervous, excited, there was so much emotion it cannot be described. It only got better from that point. What I would point out at this time is that the tensions, emotions, excitement factor… all of these things intensified as the time to hike grew closer. There were times like stepping off of the bus in Dahlonega, GA increased my anticipation and imprinted lasting memories in my mind. Even though the hike had not started, the idea of realizing that I was living the life I aspired to have, made me feel incredible inside. No one can ever take that away...
