Hiked from Springer to Three Forks today and did a loop via the Benton Mackaye trail. Register showed about 15 folks starting today, and 15 yesterday on top of Springer. Gonna be good to start in two more weeks.

It was an awesome day, and my first longer hike with my full pack. I'm ~20lbs before Food/Water and had about 5lb of Food in there and it felt pretty good.

Good luck, folks!

Cooooold night on Springer last night. It was about 16* when we woke up this morning, and probably not much warmer when we turned in. Probably about an inch or so of snow on the ground. Restless night of sleep with all my layers on in a 17* rated bag. Was warm other than my poor feet.

Saw a fair number of thru-hikers, and helped a few of them out when their filters froze with a ride into Dahlonega for a quick resupply (and got my trail name out of it. Hey!), dropped them back off at the trailhead and walked with them to Three Forks.

Razor was out doing the Ridge-Runner thing and it was good to see him out. There were some nice folks doing trail magic at Three Forks, as well.

Planning to head up to Springer next Saturday or Sunday morning with Donuts and Coffee if I can make it work.

Stay warm out there, folks!

Awesome weather this weekend, and it looks like it'll hopefully carry into next week. Did from Springer to Hawk Mountain shelter with a buddy yesterday, then hiked back out today. Lot of folks on the trail!

Crazy to realize the next time I make that trip, it's for real!

Good Luck SOBO's! Hopefully you'll have better weather to start than the NOBO's did. Don't forget to make reservations at Katahdin Stream CG (http://www.baxterstateparkauthority.com/hiking/at.htm).

See you on the trail,
