    Default Leaving April GAME ,Looking for WB members that I might run into on the trail.

    Many people are asking around trying to find people that will be leaving about the same time as each other.I know the spread sheet(http://whiteblaze.net/index_cmps.php...2012thruhikers ) tells me who, but not everyone wants to reach out and make new friends. Hope people will use this Post to introduce them selves and maybe help each other out . just makes for a better ride if you know some of the people before it starts.

    I'm not opening this thread for myself but all April Thru-Hiker Departures. Each month should have their own i think.

    I know the other thread has this info also but this is the Class of 2012 Forum for registered Thruhikers only. Just trying to help out sorry if I step on any feets.

    So if you are looking to meet new friends that are leaving the same time as your I invite you to post .

    I'll be heading out on the 25th. Definitely down to mingle with whoever I run into. If I catch up to you, I hope it's more good news for me, not bad news for you.

    See you on the Trail, you will be passing me I'm sure. Look for an old guy with a limp.

    I am not set on the exact dates, March 20th or so. I will be going from Winding Stair Gap to Fontana Dam. This will complete my section hikes as far north to Dennis Cove.

    Hope to see some of you on the trail.

    Default look for guitar!

    Good Idea Seasparrow!

    I will be leaving March 28ish but starting out slow so will probably see you. Im a novice hiker and it will be my first time east of WI (from MN). Look for 3 lads with a guitar strapped to one of their packs parading North. Hope to see you out there!
