    No, I think it's also closed in '09 for fumigation. I'm sure it's open in 2010!... Ooor is that when they're relocating it to Europe? I forget.

    When the 2007 thread came up, I immediately had my date in mind and couldn't wait to post. If anything, the sooner you know the better chance you have to spend time getting the gear you need and read all these great threads and articles on WB and planning a first rate thru.

    To the 2008ers - have fun planning this year!!!! And be thinking of us 2007ers.

    Well, anyone else plan on leaving as late as me? I didn't think April was that late.

    In 2006 I started April 5th. The first time I heard I was never going to finish on time was from a couple of day hikers I ran into on Memorial Day. From that point on, I heard it repeated all the way up the trail (always from townies and dayhikers) until I summited on October 13th. Class I day. Got to the point that when people asked me when I was going to finish I replied "no sooner than I have to"

    Next time I'll start earlier and finish later. Enjoy your hike.
    Peace
    I've got a long way to get before I get back home
