Trail Head

Hey folks, I am firing off this quick entry to let you know I will not be submitting my regular weekly dispatch. I know I am supposed to be out scouring the planet for awesome timeshare deals and fun travel tips, but I have an opportunity to fulfill a dream (well part of a dream) and I am gonna go for it. I will be spending the week hiking the Appalachian Trial! And no, I don't mean I will be rendezvousing with my Argentinean mistress. I will literally be hiking the AT. Not the whole 2,181 miles from Maine to Georgia, of course, but I am going to attempt to cover the 100 or so miles that run through Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. And while there are timeshare rentals available in the area, I am going to rough it in the huts, shelters, and campsites made available to hikers.

But I have spent too much time telling you about this already. I have packed my gear three times now, and it is still way too heavy. I seriously have to lose some of this cargo, and dawn will be here before you know it. I will be back online the week of July 18th to tell you all about my adventures. Oh, and all hikers of the trail get to pick a "trail name" for themselves. I already have a pretty cool nickname in The Timeshare Ambassador, but I can hardly resist the having another. Any suggestions?
