When there a few years ago, there were a few streams, but they were thin when I was there.
    Anyway, where you planning on stopping on Friday PM so I can meet you.
    Tentative Plan A
    Fri- Camp 5
    Sat- Camp 2

    Tentative Plan B
    Fri- Camp 5
    Sat- Camp 3
    Sun- Camp 1

    Since we're sharing horror stories, I contracted giardiasis or some other awful bug out there. Lost 12 lbs in 2 days after the trip. I'll be treating the water out of the tanks.

    So, as stated above, "a good warm up for the AT"
