thanks headchange. i'll find out when ed & karen plan to arrive, but i think the norm is early afternoon.
as far as i know we don't need to bring anything for the group. ed supplies the fire wood & the free hot dog supper sat night.
other than that, everyone is responsible for their own food, shelter, etc.
most if not all of the group usually walks through the little mountain town to the dinner for breakfast both morns. and we'll probably eat at least one other meal in town.
i know there are at least two places to eat... maybe more.
there is a nice backpacking outfitter in town that we always go in & look & talk gear.
the side walk going by the front door of the outfitter is the AT.
there's a store at the entrance to the camp ground that's plenty convenient.
don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
