    Easy hike into the Wise Shelter from Grayson Highlands SP. Coupla miles max, great scenery. Plenty of campsites, trees, and water at the shelter too.

    A shelter close by would be a good alternative to carrying in a backup shelter. If it gets to cold you could sleep in the shelter.

    Just an FYI for those that have never been to Mt Rogers. It can be 60° with blue skies in the afternoon and that night it can be in the 20's with 30-40 mph winds and blowing snow.

    That's the point! Worst case scenario, it builds character

    I'm with you on that one. I want to do some backyard testing at around 0 degrees before I go. Hopefully the Cincinnati winter will accomadate me before then.

    Yep - if we can hit 0 or better I'll consider it a raging success. Teens, just a success. 20s, well, at least the company was great.

    Does it sound strange to anyone else that we are looking for 0 or sub zero temps? Got to love it though.
