Just so you have something to read when we direct you to the blog...

Ah, the awkward first blog post. As the reader, you’re poking around trying to decide how much interest you have and how much effort you're willing to put into this. You may be asking yourself, “Am I really ready for this commitment? This could be six months of my life!“ Maybe we should just slow down and take it one post at a time. No obligation.

Since the real commitment doesn't start until April 3rd, let's take this time to get better acquainted. We're Brian and Kelly, and after 10 months of dating we've reached that inevitable we-should-hike-2,180-miles-together-for-no-apparent-reason phase of the relationship. While most couples ignore this phase, we have chosen to embrace it.

As of April 3rd, we will carry on our backs everything that we need to survive for 6 months. We will get tired, sore, hungry, grumpy, and smelly. We will succeed and triumphantly stand atop Mount Katahdin in Maine, or we will fail and find something equally interesting to fill our time and blog.

We plan to keep you posted every step of the way. So no pressure, but If you’re interested, you know where to find us.
