[at-l] RE: GA/NC hike...



Hiya Pittsburgh,
this is SLIM. We hiked from Springer to NOC  Nov 19-29 of 1997. It should be
a bit warmer for you in late Oct-early Nov.  Enjoy.  It was tough hiking
especially since I had new boots. Watch that little bump called Kelly's
Knob. She's a fooler.
Our itinerary was:

Day 1-  6 miles to tent camp at Hawk Mt Shelter trailhead (late
start)28*-56* temps
Day 2- 13 miles to Jarrad Gap, tent camp 38*-44*
Day 3- 9 miles tent camp Corbin Horse Stamp (cold rain) 36*-48*
Day 4- 13 miles tent camp near Chattahoochee Gap (cold rain)
Day 5- 11.7 miles Sassafras Gap tent camp 20*-38*
Day 6- 10 miles to PlumOrchard Shelter  20*-38*
Day 7- 11.5 miles to Standing Indian Shelter 20*-50*
Day 8- (my birthday)- 14.5 miles to Cold Spring Shelter 15*-42*
Day 9- (Thanksgiving Day)13 miles to Siler's Bald Shelter 17*-42*
Day 10-16.5 miles to tent camp near Wesser Bald 25*-52*(raining)
Day 11-10 miles to NOC (warmer & raining)

 Will we see you at the Gathering?
A day without a hike is a bad day,
