THANKS for the recommendations so far. A little background. I was born-and-raised in Powdersville (that's Anderson County, SC), and practice hike here in Nashville in plus-one-hundred degree heat index with humidity. So, walking through hot liquid air dodging playful snakes is nothing new. I'll just take it easy. So long as there are enough water supply spots, we'll be fine. Any dry stretches?
Of the three of us so far, one thru-hiked the AT last year, one started this year, but had to get off in May after 500 miles due to parents' health, and I've just completed 1,000 miles a couple of weeks ago section hiking on the AT.
Also, my wife will be there, visiting the family and what-not for the same week. In fact, that's the reason I'm finally getting to do this hike, thus the timing of it too. So, we'll have built-in shuttlers for drop-off and pick-up. Though I'm intrigued by the idea of getting a food supply delivered by lake? Is that a suggestion?!
