I have been reading several of the trail journals and postholer journals.
Has anyone seen Turtle Feet? She posted on March 12th and not since.
I hope she is ok. It is good to see several of the hikers are at or in the Smokies now.

I ran into Turtle Feet and HeartSong on Wed (3/23) at Plum Orchard Shelter - she was staying the night. Turtle Feet mentioned she was trying to come into Franklin for a zero on Sunday (3/27)

Hiker Sightings..LOL.. I cnat believe you thought you saw a hiker.. There are no such things as hikers.. Man where do you come up with these things...

last time I was out on the Trail I saw many Bigfeet thought.. Man it was just too overcrowded....

if I ever see a hiker, Im running a way... But then, I dont believe they exist.....

late year it seems. journals are a bit empty for late March. Like 15 or so NOBO's in VA heading North. Ran into a handful in the last 2 weeks on my section walk

I know I pushed my start date back a little after all the snow that hit the Smokies last year. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

Ran into luchbox and smokestack at the maupin field shelter Friday. They left springer on Feb 8th. Met smokestack who was finishing up a section he missed year. Also saw suicide, a sobo who left Maine in may of last year. He has had 4 surgeries since getting on the trail, bit keeps on moving. Ran into general Sherman continuing from last year.
