    Wish you could make it. This is shaping up to be rather mild and relaxed compared to previous years.

    I believe the plan is for Hangnout and I to meet you for lunch, then drive to RHK. Should the three of us (with two cars) set up the shuttle? Would we need to leave earlier?

    We'll probably want to firm up the attendance for this one. It looks like we've got 7-8 commitments so far. 7-8 won't fit in a single vehicle with gear, so some would have to wait for the return vehicles if we did manage to get another vehicle on the other end.

    We're already getting there several hours before most of them now.

    Speaking of.....

    when you get to the blue blaze trail to the shelter put something in the trail for Spam to see. He'll be far ahead of Poof and I and you know how easy it is to miss that side trail in the dark.

    Shuttle

    I would be happy to run one shuttle on Sunday from Roan Mt community to Carver's gap. I should be able to haul 3-4 back to the top.

    If we were just hauling drivers, we'd probably just need three. Now if cell phones would just work near the trailhead....

    Looks like Friday night will be the closest to chilly that we get with a low around 19 and a windchill of 12. The wind Friday night looks to be pretty gusty around 35 mph. Saturday's daytime high does not appear to be as warm as anticipated hovering slightly above freezing at the altitude we'll be in and the wind will die down after morning.
