    It's cold out there. Be safe and use your head. I've seen where some are averaging 8+ miles a day since starting in the snow and ice. God bless you. That kind of inner strength is immeasurable

    I'm planning on starting the 7th now instead of the first. I've been told about a foot of snow on the ground now and rain on top of that every day from tomorrow till the 6th. I'll take waiting the extra few days for better weather at the very beginning

    Myself and Blackbear are starting the 8th.

    Pajj and Bemental keep an eye out for Pat from Manassas VA starting March 7-8. That is my little brother who decided last minute to hike while he is between jobs. If you see him, load a rock into his pack for me. Enjoy your hike.

    Hah! I did the same thing. I told like 4 people I was starting on the 15, but I'm only leaving on the 15th and will be making a few hundred mile detour by Florida to drop Grandma off before I get anywhere near the trail.

    I'm sorry, mountainsquid. My plans have changed to a Flip-Flop from Harpers Ferry on May 3rd, following the FFKO. FYI.
