I'm writing my day 0 entry from home. Normally I'm leaving for or on a bus on day zero but this is a nice change. I really like the idea that for once I'm not going someplace far away to do a long hike. While I haven't done any significant portions of the CT I have done scattered miles here and there and crossed it numerous times on foot and in car. Very little of the territory will be new either. Between backpacking and peak bagging I've been all over my proposed route already.
It'll be a scramble to get out the door tomorrow though. There is still plenty to do and final packing is the least of my worries. It looks like an all nighter is ahead of me. It will be worth it once I hit the trail though.
