We came home from New Zealand on March 21st, 2014 and took the next three weeks preparing for our Appalachian Trail Journey. You can read about our prep in a five part series and we’ll review it when we finish the trail. This is a sampling of our better pictures from the three weeks in Maine ranging from physical, food, gear and even logistical prep.
