My first zero was at Gooch Mtn Shelter, started from Amicalola. All my stuff got soaked from the rain, slept in a mud puddle that night, one of my freakin' coldest miserable nights on the trail. I started a fire the next day and dried everything out. I know one guy that called it quits, he took the shortcut into Suches.

Franklin. Combination of peer pressure, thunderstorms and beer.

Many hikers first zero was in Hiawassee....for Little Bear and I it was too, time for resupply, reconfigure gear, and have some rest and relaxation.

My first was at Rainbow Springs (Franklin).

Some will zero at Blood Mtn Cabins or Mountain Crossings.

I bet that most hikers first zero is in Hiawassee.
