    Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
    Healthy, free, the world before me,
    The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

    Ftroop, excellent compilation of the miles

    So first day is longest but easy.
    Saturday is shortest but hardest.
    Last day shortest and easiest and if memory serves a beautiful plunging waterfall pool near the end for a group photo op (wearing Hadrons/or not).

    In the interest of scouting I am sitting at Ming's right now.

    3 hot lines, 3 cold lines, a Mongolian BBQ, ice cream (scoop not soft serve) and some sushi being made by the BBQ guy...

    Change of direction

    In light of the outstanding attendance you are expecting and the comments of the ranger, I will be taking the opposite track. So there will be plenty of space at the campsites, because I have a client with me, I don't want to risk not having a spot or enough trees. Maybe we will see you on the trail Saturday.

    Friday in through Stage Coach
    Saturday Stone Door & back to sawmill
    Sunday Hobb's
    Monday hike out

    We are in the extended forecast window for the beginning of the trip. Of course it will change 15 times, but as of today: Thursday 3/7 will be 44/24 F and cloudy!

    We may break the BSF Backpacking record participation. What was the total Spamburgler?

    I believe we had 20 hiking hangers together at the Friday night bivouac.
