Leaving in a few minutes, will hit up REI in Atlanta on the way and the chill in a Hotel tonight before Springer parking in the morning sometime. No Rush No Schedule everything has come together and it is time to leave!

Hope to see you guys out there! Watch out for my crazy dog, he ate three hikers last year!

Peace!

Chiedaddy Weather forcast- Bad with a chance of Ouch and Scattered Soggy Feet. 100% chance of bad mood after frozen fingers with a touch of bad words and endless uphills with very long downhills :D

It's alright to start on a rainy day.....it makes the sunny ones that much better!
Best of luck, and enjoy every moment!

With all that being said what time is most hikers leaving out? I will be at Am. State Park for the AT celebration and would like to go up and see some of the hikers off.

I don't know if everyone has heard of this site but it is realy great! It has seven day forcasts for the whole trail. And by the whole trail I mean that is predicts weather for all of the shelters and summits and gaps and flats and everything. Check it out, it really helped me a lot in my planning:

Hike well everyone and be safe.

Good luck Chiefdaddy - don't forget to feed Chief some of those "weekend warrior" types for extra energy!:eek::D

When you get into BMECC's section, leave me a note in the registers - I'll find it!
