    Does anybody have any other suggestions for a day hike?
    There are two I recommend for non-hikers.

  2. Two and a Wake-up

    The plan for starting the AT Hike has entered its final stage. Scamper & I hosted Coach and Polka Dot at our home for supper last evening. We had planned on there being at least one other attendee, but W2 opted to withdraw his name from the excursion.

    As far as other things to enjoy on that section.

    Change #1:
    Polka Dot has joined me for the Georgia section.
    Change #2:
    We will leave Amicalola Falls on 04 Feb, vice just me on the 06 Feb. That was her idea; not mine! But there are cogent reasons to add the leg.

If the phone doesn't see the three things all correct it flags the user with a beep and message and selects the slower 6-8 hour charge instead of the two.
