Who cares about showers, gourmet food, using flush toilets. Just keep on walking and being away from it all.
At a casual pace, I covered the RS to Hobbs Cabin in about 4 hours. If you're used to hiking in the mountains, this first day will be very easy, since there is maybe 300 feet of climbing over a dozen micro-climbs total.
If you stop for 15 minutes out of every hour, you could still make it easily in about 5-6 hours.
If you are truly slow, you will take longer to walk the 5 miles on Saturday slower than this first walk in.
Well the sun will be up by around 6:30, so a group breakfast could certainly work I folks want to do so on Friday.
I did just realize that we "Spring Forward" when we arise Sunday the 10th!
Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,

The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.
Let's all start crossing good weather fingers for the breakfast buffet in the Gulf Friday morning.
Last time from the rangers to hobbs took me 3.5 hours-they had me freeked about hiking at night
Lot's of places if I rember right to linger on the way.
Watch your weather MedicineMan,,,weatherman this morning was talking about 6 diff. fronts moving thru during the next 2 weeks of cold and snow/mix/rain type weather. Maybe by then it will level out and have decient weather for your weekend. Wished I was there,,have 2 shows to set for that weekend and now have to bounce up to Clevenland to see and visit a possible show contract for the future..so really tied up that weekend now. Will enjoy your posts and videos of this weekend. I have fished the lake there in tourneys before. Awesome country.
I may well be joining in on this! Very excited! If we do the group breakfast I will bring some great bacon to cook over the fire!
