    It's probably the generation gap In 15 years you'll be ready for a little solitude and partying won't be as important. Enjoy being young. Milk it for all it's worth but be careful.

    See y'all on the trail

    AW- Be sure to let us NOBOs know about good swimming holes when we pass.
    Tomorrow might just be too late and today is just beginning.

    Mosquitos have killed a lot more humans than have snakes.

    Thanks Kirby. Good luck with the snow and freakish cold snaps in GA and NC in March/April. Good luck packing up that wet tent every morning because there were 20 people already shoved in the shelter.

    Seriously, I hope you have a great hike shug.

    Also, I personally prefer the butter to be spread evenly upon the bottom of my bread.

    Answer - Not yet (but, I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express).
