I sort of did that already. The biggest thing I saw was the food. I brought entirely too much food. I though with as many ups as there were, I'd be much more hungry than I really was. I carried entirely too much food. The rest of the stuff was all used to some extent. Plus I was planning on pretty cold temps and I'm glad I did.

That said, the opposite problem -- not having enough food -- is far worse. Done that twice, once on family hike in April at Standing Indian in 2000, and the first half of my section last March. In 2000 we actually ran out of food the morning of the final day, after eating very short rations the night before. That Burger King in Franklin never looked so good. Last March I was just starving when we got to Hot Springs, and ended up buying a lot of extra food for the second half of the section.
