My, my, my! This has sure been an interesting chain to peruse! I thought my pards and I were going to drive back east to "re-enact" a bit of the Civil War. Now it appears there may be some of the real deal! Interesting times indeed. As for conditioning, the others are right when they say "Start getting used to having that pig on your back and those brogans on your feet for LONG periods." If your shoes are going to chafe your feet on a long walk, best to find out near home, instead of the wilds of LouseyAnna. And for many of us, our shoulders will be heard from the next morning after strolling four, five, six (or more) miles with a loaded pack. But after a few days of this routine, the shoulders stop barking so much. Our soldier forebearers had to go through the same breaking-in each spring when campaigning commenced. At least we get to "ease" into it. Anyway...

Cheers! Looking forward to this little woodland ramble.
