North to South
“Set up shuttle at Fontana Dam, head to Davenport Gap to start early Tuesday. Approx 10am start.
I have reserved 3 spots in each of the shelters, and I have 2 open. Paces differ, so we hike our hike, and accordion, yo-yo, leap-frog, or just meet up at the next shelter.
11/22 - Cosby Knob
11/23 - Pecks Corner
11/24 - Mt. Collins
11/25 - Derricks Knob
11/26 - Mollies Ridge
If we get into a groove and get ahead of schedule we can shave a day off, if we are having fun the schedule stands.
The backcountry office stated there are 1-2 spots left at each shelter, but this being Thanksgiving, i doubt we will have a full house.
firstname.lastname@example.org or msg me on facebook if you are interested.”
“sounds like a good trip but I can't get off all week”
“everyone should already get Thursday and Friday off....so all you need is Tuesday and Wednesday. lol”
“still a no go on those days”
I wouldnt be able to go over thanksgivinday
“Just got a call that Icewater Springs is closed due to bear activity. This throws a wrench in my section hike.
--wait, and hope it clears a week from now.
--Start at Kephart, and hike up to Pecks Corner?
--Start at NFG, vs Clingmans and push to Pecks - shortening the trip by a day”
“Glad you had a good trip.. sorry about the weather... but hey -- now you know what that section of the AT is like.”
“I don't think I could ever thru-hike the AT. I met 5 SOBO's on the last day, and was congratulating them on only 220 miles left to go. Mr. Z commented..."it's just walkin"”
“Great pics, great section of the AT. I did an out and back dayhike from Overmountain shelter to Roan mt. the first of Sept. Love that high elevation evergreen forest.”
