What is the traffic like starting off from Springer early May? Is it likely I'd be able to group up with some folks on the trail? Assuming... they like me ;-)

You will meet up with people, thru hikers, section hikers, day hikers if not today then eventually.

I was wondering the same thing. I'll be starting at Springer May 20. Probablly won't meet any thrus until I start to catch up to some but I think there should be plenty of people around.

I did the Approach Trail to Neel's Gap last year over May 15-19 and it wasn't crowded at all. The only semi-crowded time was on day 2 at Hawk Mtn. shelter when I think there might have been 15 people total. I'm doing Neel's to Standing Indian in a couple weeks, May 14-20th.
