Hamike, I'm a real quick pooper in tick and spider infested latrines, haha I heard a jingly noise while I was in there and assumed it was you so I hiked fast to catch up then eventually realized that must of been one of those kids getting water or something, haha. Thanks a ton for hanging around.
Tendertoe, I'm in. As the time gets closer you can make a thread. Let's explore some other options too. Shawnee is a tough hike but lots of forest roads to avoid hiking. Mohican might be the best choice though.
I'm hoping to do linville gorge in october and maybe pennsylvania AT in september, ill post as time draws near. Hopefully you guys can join me if I can work it out at work.
DivaB everyone is plenty knowledged on weight here but if you have any questions I'm confident you could get down to a low weight fairly cheaply.
