    Default Where are most NOBO's right now? (2006)

    I was thinking the same thing as ATTROLL and starting this thread as he suggested.

    Ok, so I will transfer my entry from "General" over here:

    Papabear started at 01/01 and was last reported in Hot Springs.
    Patriot started at 02/01 and should have made it past Unicoi Gap by now.
    Jaws started at 01/29 and was in Hiawassee at 02/06.
    icecrmman and his daughter ebony started yesterday.

    That's just 4 of them I know, but there may be others. I hope they all are well.

    Default Class of '06

    I met Pariot at the Hiker Hostel and walked with him to the top of Springer on 2/01. Met another thruhiker there named Troy who was ahead of Patriot when we last saw him on 2/02. He's fairly young, and was an Army Ranger, but didn't have a trail name as yet. Best wishes to all of the class of '06!

    Youngblood and I met Pirate on the trail above Springer last Wed. He is 65 and said he did a thu-hike in '95 and wanted to get an early start this one. He said he was going to get to Franklin and take a couple of days off. I hope he is okay.

    Thumbs up Departed Springer Friday, Feb. 10th

    Left Springer at 2:PM Friday.

    Snow on the ground all the way to Hawk Mtn Shelter. Got there at dark. One other hiker there. EZ 1 is his trail name. He's 83 and said he did a thru-hike 2 years back. I broke 4 to 6 inches of snow all day Sat. took me 7 hours to make Cooch Mtn shelter. Met a weekender named Bill there. EZ 1 arrived 2 hours later safe and sound. The temp got into the teens F. and got more snow Sat, night. EZ 1 is a WW II Vet, I am a Vietnam vet , and Bill is a Desert Shield and Desert Storm vet, which we thought was kind of cool, and maybe we should question our sanity a little too ? :>))

    I took a hard fall Sat. and almost went over a 200 footer today so I came off at Woody Gap, and got a ride with Bill, untill the snow is less and it warms up a little, it's just to darn slick coming down some of the steep downs. I am holed up with Keith Bailey at Goose Creek cabins for the next two or three days I guess. News station in Atlanta is calling for 60 by Wed. so I am hoping to restart then.

    I saw 5 turkeys and got to watch a Coyote for a few minutes Sat. which made all the snow and cold well worth it. Lots of dear and rabbit tracks too, but never saw any, but did see some small birds today, Sunday.

    no trail name yet .............

    P.S. Mountain Crossings at Neals Gap charged me a $1.00 "donation for hikers food" they said, for me to pick up my USPS package today. Something about this bugs me !! What kind of hiker would need food that soon into their hike ? Could happen I guess ? Maybe I should hit em up huh. After all I am SNOW bound !! :>))

    Priate was at Neel's on Friday. He did hike in '95 and as far as I know (and Ido know Pirate) he has been out almost every year since.


    Also the hiker food at Neels is the cookouts he does for hikers. When he gets enough money up they will have a cookout on the back deck.

    I think with the weather he was staying at least for a few days. But he is heading North. Said he wanted to be ahead of the crowd this year. Mentioned he would spend time off at his normal trail towns.

    Default Hello everyone ...

    Hey folks ... Papabear here, just responding to this thread. Currently I'm located on the Weastern Side of Miss Janet's Kitchen sitting in front of a view of a Dell 17" monitor.

    'Bear' and I, got snowed in for a few days and have been trying to recover fron having the flu, which I recieved in Hot Springs. Been having a grand time however, and enjoying the hike, the people and the towns. Miss Janet has been preparing us for the next few months mentally and emotionally. It really has been a blessing to be staying here.

    We hiked in to Erwin and got here around 12:05am Saturday morning. We we're outrunning a storm that seemed to be directly behind us. We had waist high snow drifts on top of Bald Mountain and Big Stamp. Leaving in the morning, best wishes to everyone else that's out there, and following from home.

    Thumbs up Nice views from

    Blood Mtn. yesterday. I go t back on trail Thrusday 2-16-06 at Woody Gap and hiked to Neals Gap. View from Blood Mtn. was fantastic and very little snow left on the trail. I had a big Red headed woodpeacker raise hell with me for a few minutes just south of Bird Gap. Passed Gary from TX and was passed by Harry and Katy, two thru hikers. Also run into a day hiker. Caught Harry and Katy at Neals Gap where they were checking out some different gear options.

    Still trying to help Keith out here at Goose Creek as he is still in the hospital and looks like might be there several more days ? Tyler, one of his grandsons, and I are holding down the fort pretty well thus far, but I am itching to get to hiking !!

    Info I got at Mt. Rogers on Thurs PM 2/16 was that they had seen the 1st NOBO 3 days earlier when he passed thru Damascus. I didn't get his name ( trail or otherwise ) .

    Just a quick message from the public library in Hiawassee. Im staying at the Blueberry Patch Hostel with Pilgrim, Redblaze and Sunset. We all are taking a zero day today. Hiking has been great so far even if the weather wasn't that good the last couple of days. But we are hiking into spring so it will get better ever day (at least this is what I hope for)
    I love it. And I mean everything, even the bad moments
