lol, ok within a day or two there will be a hundred people behind you, and you certainly will see plenty of people on March 1st.

We are planning to start the last week of Feb.

Why not?

I think Tuesday through Thursday would be the perfect days to start.

I agree! Midweek starts are preferable than weekends unless you like crowds.

My comment was that there would be no way that 200 other hikers would be starting on Thursday, March 1.

BTW, when I started my thru I was the only person that spent the night at Springer. I shared Gooch Gap shelter with a couple section hikers at the end of my first day hiking, and didn't spend the night with another thru until Rainbow Springs. Things have changed over the years.

I'm planning on March 15 (unless something unforeseen changes that date).

We moved our start date to March 1st - Skipper, Paul Bunyan, and Blissful.

And from what I heard at Trail Days - hikers there warned to be ready for snow.

I'll be starting the approach trail on 3/4. You'll probably stay ahead of me though, since I'll be moving slow.

You're half my age so you might catch up soon! See you on the trail.
