I'm eager to start, but worried about snowy weather. I'm a fast hiker too, so going slow to cope with bad snow in the beginning isn't something that I want to do. Anyone have links to good journals where people hiked through snowy conditions at the start? What's it like?

i lay my jelouse heart at all your feet. still beating, stillborn. i will endevor to live vicariously thru your hikes. remember well these words i speak here: nothing important or fun or even remotely interesting will happen here while you are hiking. be assured, the rest of the world beyond hikerdom sucks and will continue to suck in your absence. only you few brave souls will actually classify as alive during the period of your hikes. you may disconect your ambilical cords and switch to internal power.....now.

Hey Mountain Squid. I just got done talking with Rockhound. He says he met you while hiking in Shady Valley a few years ago. Anyways, he started on the approach trail on Feb 13th and got through the Smokies yesterday.Rockhound has a good memory. I had to check my notes and I did meet Rockhound in 2009 near Shady Valley.

Did he happen to mention the condition of the Smokies? Was there any snow? I'm sure there are more than a few that would be interested to know what to expect thru the Smokies . . .

(If Rockhound wants to be added to the spreadsheet I need to know what his WhiteBlaze username is.)

Good Luck to Rockhound!

And the Smokies still have a lot of sections of packed snow and ice from before Clingmans dome to after tricorner knob shelter but he says it is not nearly as bad as years past in Feb.

Hey Mt Squid!
Thanks for your work on this. I didn't get to leave on the 16th. Don't ask, it's in the past now.
The good news is that I'll be arriving at AFSP on the 25th & leaving Springer on the 26th.
Thanks for the updates!

Mountain Squid,

Please remove me from 2011 list. I won't be starting April 1st this year due to a herniated disc. I am 95% better now and will plan on next April.

Thanks,

unfortunately, i have yet to sell my truck. =( but it's in the newspaper, on craigslist, AND it's sitting in the "lemon lot" on the air force base. it's bound to sell soon, right? =(

as soon as it does, i'm hiking. until then... i'll be pushed back a day at a time.
