    I would take you up on the offer but my hiking partner (10 year old daughter) fell off a 6 ft tall retaining wall a couple of days ago.
    She did not break anything but scratched herself up badly trying to catch herself.

    Mar 3-5 I did Sections 10, 11 and 12. Only saw 8 people the whole weekend on the trail. This trip was a north to south. Section 11 is dry and has lots of downed trees on the south end. It was an enjoyable solo hike. Am planning Sections 8 and 9 mid April.

    Ran from Coleman Lake almost to Pine Glenn and back this morning. Trail looked good other than the Turkey Hunter seated on the trail with his scatter gun (orange not required).

    There was about a mile that was still smouldering from a controlled burn around the Shoal Creek Church. Very little smoke.

    11 had water, before you go up the mtn. There were probably 4 different places to get water. Now...it wasnt a lot of water, but flowing. Seasonal I guess youd say...

    We did 4 days. Saw 2 kayakers on the lake next to choccolocca shelter, and 2 day hikers on top of Dugger. Oh...and one guy at the Church. I dont count Pine Glenn campground.
