[NOTE: Dates have been changed, pushed back by one day. Now hiking Sat-Tues.]
The Leonid Meteor shower should be full strength on the weekend of November 15-16. Backpacker magazine (Nov issue) recommends going to a wilderness mountain top in NC area to view the shooting stars. The AT in VA is close enough for me! Weather permitting, we should be able to see the shooting stars each and every night.
Anyone interested in a hike NOBO out of Damascus, perhaps starting Friday, Nov 14, and finishing up on Monday, the 17th? Ideally, I would come out at Dickey Gap/Troutdale on Monday mid-day, but am flexible on all details.
I have posted an invite on Nashville Backpackers MeetUp Group too, to see if I get any nibbles on driving over together on Thursday evening.
If you can't join me (us?), anyone interested in doing a shuttle on Monday?
