Pretty decent shape since the military makes me stay that way.
It is open to anyone who wants to go. The more the merrier IMHO.
Color me interested. Depending on when it occurs, I may or may not be able to go. My Sundays and Mondays are always open, but Fridays and Saturdays are hard for me to get off of work (and I work evenings, so I get out of work around midnight on Saturday night). A Tuesday is not hard for me to get off.
I don't usually average 3 mph (closer to 2.5 mph on the flat, dropping a bit depending on elevation change), but I'm good for a ten or fifteen miler each day in that terrain, no sweat.
No problem on the speed. We can hike together or meet up at designated points during the day.
I just spoke with my wife and found out her fam is visiting us for six weeks mid April which means I would need to go late March/early April or in June. It would take a day to drive up and a day back so take that into account. I can get off pretty easy so we could drive up on a Sunday but that would put us coming back late Wednesday or Thursday if we hiked Springer to Neels.
