This will be a thread for WhiteBlaze folks to post updates, news, and current info about the trail, including conditions, trail towns, hostels, services, etc. Any info that current hikers might need to know. So, if you are out on the trail (or in town) and notice something of significance please post it here. Hopefully, this will be helpful for disseminating info to those who need it.

See you on the trail,

Outdoor 76 is an outfitter that just opened up last year in Franklin, NC. THEY WILL GIVE YOU FREE RIDES TO/FROM THE TRAIL AND AROUND TOWN!!! When I went through they picked us up at the trail, drove us to their store where they let us ditch our packs, took us to the AYCE and grocery store, then drove us back to the trail when we were ready. Definitely check them out.
