    The AT is always harder than what I normally hike, though I don't think this section is that hard. Playing it by ear is definitely the way to go. I do like the idea of an easy Friday hike. and hanging out with PapaSmurf.
    I looked at the map and it doesn't look like it is too bad in the elevation, but that shower and all that stuff sounds really good. Are we still on pa for meeting at Gathland at 11?

    We're leaving Ohio around 4pm and will likely make it into Dahlgren 10 or 11pm. That gives us Friday for 7 leisurely miles into Gathland.

    I'm aiming for 11, 11:30 at the latest. Not expecting much traffic heading south from Jersey, maybe around Dover. I'm gonna leave here 6:30 or 7 am.

    I'm going to try and get there early. There are some recent builds that I have tested but my wife has not used yet, so some training is in order!

    Well, after numerous automotive issues, I think I'm ready to head out in the morning. Per our phone conversations, we will meet in parking lot at Gathland, spend Wednesday night at Ensign Cowall.

    Thursday, we'll text Demeter by 3 or 4 pm to let her know where we'll camp, either Pine Knob or Dahlgren. She'll hike in to Gathland with us, and then we drop her off at her car on the way back to retrieve our vehicle.

    Looking forward to the hike and meeting you guys!

    Geez, if I could only get packed. It's been a hard week and I'll be exhausted by the time I hit the trail. My wife is apopleptic that I'm going to be gone for four nights - she thinks I'm abandoning the family (especially the dog Peanut- never mind the 13-year-old son).

    On the positive side, I got my Ursack in the mail. It's sweet.
