Hiking on the illinois River trail

Wednesday, August 28, 2019

We would like to hike the Appalachian or at least the first 80 miles in Georgia and so we are practicing for that. We has 30 pounds in backpacks this included tent, sleeping bag, mat and pillow, food, one change of clothes, water and toiletries(toothpaste etc) Carrying these backpacks is a major challenge for us as we are seasoned hikers.
