    Oh yeah, I also want to mention that I plan on bringing both Kiba and Tala for this one. They both love people.

    I believe that a big part of the trail is shut down for the Deer hunting season.

    Hiking during Deer Season is not on my list of "must-do stunts".

    I can do the weekend of October 27/28, 2012. The weekends on either side of that have "must attend" events for me. If we do schedule it for that weekend, I'll probably go up a day or two early.

    IIRC, all the SHT is not closed during deer season, but large portions are closed, typically including some of the state parks.

    EDIT: I now realized that the Winter Camping Symposium is the weekend of October 27/28. I should have noted that earlier. I'm also available November 10/11.

    What about November 2-4th? It would be right after the Winter Camping Symposium which means some people that were attending that could potentially make it to the hang too. Plus, the colder weather would be nice and we might see some snow too.

    I can only make it late October early November because I'll be on a hiking trip for 15 days in September and December-February I will be really busy with something.

    But, it's all up to you guys.

    February is what concerns me the most !!

    We have the Winter camping Symposium the weekend of the 26th and hunting season will be happening for the next two weekends.

    It sounds like the weekend of the 19th-21st will work out for most people. However, not everyone is going to the WCS and that should be considered as well.

    So, it sounds like we have a choice for the weekend of the 19th and the weekend of the 26th. I think I'm going to start a new thread and throw up a poll with some dates.
