    Default Sat March 1st class

    Only 3 days to go !!!

    You all got your gear together and ready? Going to pack my gear up in a little bit and then I'm ready to roll!!!

    Woke up around 4am, looked out the window and all I could think was "almost a full moon - enough light to hike off!!!!" Cant wait to do the night hiking!

    Ready for the rain, foot problems, ice, snow, zero days, mud, hurt knees, rattle snake bites - okay that only applies to us stupid enough to play with them, running from banjo music, falling in the streams, iced up boots, and all the other fun times!!!

    Catch ya all at Springer or somewhere along the way!!!

    Wrongway and Cannibal, best wishes for an excellent thru! I know Cannibal will be more comfy cause he's "thru-hamocking". I'll definitely be following both your TJ's closely. Cannibal, hope I can catch up with ya some and hang a night or 2.....give me a shout some time!

    Just for a little 'moon' help along the AT. If you see it in the condition it was at 4AM, that means it's 24 more days to a full moon!
    Have a great hike. See you somewhere in the northeast.
    Break a leg. I'll miss your posts.


    Write when you get a chance - are you journalling? Maybe a link to your journal, honestly - I've never read anyone's trail journal but my interest is piqued this year with all the WB riends on the trail
    Peace

    Default To help you across Fontana Dam ...

    Wrongway,

    Before you leave make sure you swing by my place ... I've got that
    device to help you avoid that re-route around Fontana Dam. This is the
    right flotation device right? click here Why didn't you just send it over to your place anyway?

    Regards,

    No need for those type of insults -

    I guess you meant shipboard inflatables
    .

    Not inflatable sheep like the "Luvn Lamb" products that you go through every couple of weeks:


    Regardless .... stay safe and stay warm - and you better make it to Harpers Ferry - at a minimum. You've trained hard enough.

    That is way wrong!

    Glad I didn't share a tent with you guys on the Jan. "Parade of Fools" in NY.

    Take care, Wrongway. Hope to see you in New England.
