    Default Seeking hiking partner(s) for 4 days in Shenandoah starting 9/1 - Labor Day

    Hi,

    My name is Brad and I will be hiking the lower half of Shenandoah on the A.T. beginning Labor day which is Monday, September 1st. I did the northern half of the park earlier this year with a group of people I met here on White Blaze, and it was a fantastic trip.

    The hike would be from Swift Run Gap down to Rockfish Gap which is at the southern end of the park right outside of Waynesboro. Please be able to do 10-13 miles per day - the terrain is really easy here and it should take us 4 days and 3 nights to finish this 45 mile section.

    Me: I'm 31 y/o, live in New York City, easy going, sometimes quiet, sometimes talkative. Looking for someone male or female or even a group of folks that don't mind being quiet or don't mind chatting (I can be talkative at times). In other words, I'm not looking to entertain someone but I am looking for some chill companions to go with. I am a completely sane, professional, educated, trustworthy individual. Please be the same...BUT loud-mouthed in-your-face political conservatives need not apply. :-)

    If interested, please PM me or email me at [email protected].

    bumping this up..time is nearing. Looks like the average high in Shenandoah the first week in April is 71 degrees! Hoping for a beautiful trip. Despite the joking above, welcome to anyone who's interested in joining.

    Your biggest climb is right out of gate with a 1000' ascent of Hightop Mountain. Nothing like a heart pumping climb early in the morning. Water sources should be in fine shape with the wet summer we've had.
    About 3, maybe 3 1/2 DAYS is really all you'll need to get to Rockfish Gap. Hope you can find a hiking partner.

    Getting lost is a way to find yourself.

    Hey Speed Bump!!! This shenandoah trip is cancelled...no one seemed to be able to join. I'm doing 70 miles of the hundred mile wilderness instead (couldn't get enough time off for the whole thing)...so next year sounds great for us all to finish up!!! Dont forget about a long CT weekend in October :-)
