    Extreme Hike for a Cure

    Hi all! I wanted to let y'all know about a hike/fundraiser that the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (Charlotte office) will be doing April 23-25. In one day (April 24), they will be doing the entire Art Loeb Trail in Pisgah. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend. However, I know many of you would be interested in this event. Help them find a cure!

    Sounds like a good thing! But I don't think I want to try to go out & hike 30.1 miles in one day, not on that trail
    I hope they have good participation though.

    Yeah.... Wow! The whole trail in one day?!

    I read that 4 or 5 people a couple of years back did " The Dome to the Dam" on the AT in the Smokies. That's about the same distance and it took them around 20+ hours!! They were hurting, it'll be grueling that's for sure.

    Like RF said, that's the Hot Springs hang weekend too!
