Well, here's my version of the trip. I was looking forward to meeting Jerry W.,Pizza, and Sarah up at the Glenn Wendell site but my "local knowledge" and their decision to go to another site made this a solo trip for me.
I got up to the HQ a little later than I had planned, about 8 PM. I get up to YRSF about 8-10 times a year so I know the trails pretty well. I could see the groups' tracks heading to the main trail and I knew of a shortcut that would shave off about twenty minutes, so I took it. What I missed by doing that was their tracks heading to the John Schultz site at the fork in the trail.
When I got up to Glenn Wendell there was nobody there and I immediately knew what had happened. I thought about heading their way but it was 9PM and I don't mind solo trips. It's kind of fun to talk to yourself, the trees, my gear, etc.
Anyway, I got set up and had a great night of sleep in the Blackbird. I gotta say I love the BDG Winter Dream with pullouts. Sweet tarp! Had a great hot breakfast from the hammock on a beautiful day and a great day snowshoeing around the park.
Hopefully, sometime soon I'll get the opportunity to meet Jerry W and Pizza. Sarah, have a great trip on the AT!
Here's a few pics for you to enjoy!
