    Also, it is so warm here right now it is scary. No need for the 4 season gear that Fed Ex brought today. :-(

    Might be able to use it on the Mount Mitchell trip next month!

    Have a good trip! This one looks to be a bit of a wet slog from the forecast.
    I'll keep eyeing my winter kit for a better opportunity. In the mean time, the work fairy just left a big pile for me to clean up on my doorstep.

    Just got back from my trip from Carvers to Overmountain. Temps never got much below 30, but it was nice and rainy all last night. The Appalachian creek, err, trail was a bit slushy going up, sloggy coming back down, and foggy the whole time. Sure am glad I had microspikes. Roan Mtn looked almost snow-free. All we had on our trek was a few inches of old snow here and there along the trail. But LOTS of mud!

    You guys have fun!



    Also, here's a shameless promotion for the Kahtoola Microspikes. They were the only reason I made it up the hills yesterday.

    My group and myself won't be there either ! Some due to the flu it's running rampant up here ! Others due to the muddy weather ! Please post a trip report upon your return though! We will be with you in spirit !

    I'm sure I've been called worse.
    Keep an eye out on that weather. Warm unstable air masses like that in the winter can bring in some dicey conditions.

    MisterDark, thanks for the pics! Glad you did well. The weather is def. freaky. If my mom were still around she'd shake her head and say 'it's the end of days'! Let's hope not
    Are you planning on coming back up next month for the annual Higher Colder Hang?

    Well we watched the weather reports all day and it looked like we were going to get there and sit in the rain. We bailed.

    No rain so far and as we sit at home, we are now pissed that we did not go. :-(

    Ice <== Wimp.
