Good, I'm glad to see less mileage. Yes, JD is dropping at my starting point and then he's heading into Damascus to work the Leki Booth. I'm grabbing ride back home with him at the end of Trail Days.
Here was something I was looking at that's about 23.5 miles form Wed. to Friday. I wanted to make for a short day on Friday so when I get into Damascus I'd have lots fo energy.
FORGET THIS, I'M GOING WITH OPTION 2 ABOVE ! !
Camp at Elk Garden. Bring water for evening and next morning. No water marked on map.
Hike from Elk Garden to Lost Shelter. 8 miles.
Hike 10 miles to US/Straight Branch campsite. No water at campsite Looks like stream close by. I know nothing about this camping spot. Decent or not? I don't know?
Hike 5.5 miles to Damascus.
Anyone familiar with these spots and can tell me details on water and camping?
