SilvrSurfr, I would be on this trip but at Spring MAHHA a few were making plans for an extended NOBO out of SNP. I understand your motives in not doing the same section again. I'll miss your humor and stories but like WV said we will meet at Gathland so I'll see ya there. There are some others that do not want to repeat trail either. You won't have trouble getting a group together to hike in.
I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.
