    Having completed 344 miles of the southern AT this winter, I hope that is a good base to head SOBO. But a flip flop is also being considered depending on when we can get back on the trail.

    Friday afternoon in the summer is probably good as traffic is moving about 5mph into HF, unless I have been unlucky the times I drove there.

    leaving for Springer on Sunday. I've decided to ship my microspikes to Fontana Dam, and carry my pair of yaktrax from the start just in case. They are much lighter. Not sure how long to keep the...

    I agree, this statement was no different than their original. They should be notifying their membership with some facts monthly.

    I saw his, but it seemed to say the same thing they said a month ago? Did you see something that they are talking with contractors?

    I think the bridge would be fine. But I agree the road between the bridge and to the trail does have some sections with only a 2-3 ft shoulder so that would be more of a risk than that bridge. But...

    yes that is the bridge but if you look at either end you see a clear path worn in the dirt so I would think it gets crossed on foot or bike pretty often. That looks safer than where I walk daily.

    Looking at street view in google maps there is a well worn path on both sides of the 340 bridge where someone is walking across the bridge in that walkway. So I suspect it is possible and probably...

    I am sure I take far more risk walking along highways with traffic going 50-60 mph while some fools text and drive. How about putting the walkway back on bridge and install a light or horn that goes...
