     Just wanted to introduce myself while some others were.  I'm planning
on section hiking from Ga. through Va. over the next few years. No, I don't
have the biggest aspirations. I'm hoping to do Ga-Wesser NC this year.  I
live about 40 miles from Amicalola.   I do walk with my dog, but I make it a
habit to stay out of everyone's way.  

     My question is, is the Springer-NC section really as packed in the
spring as everyone says?  The irony is that, although I live this close to
the AT and I've done a lot of backpacking, I've never been on the AT. I'm
seriously considering rescheduling doing Ga-NC to the fall because of the
crowd. (Hurricane Opal bumped me out of doing it last fall.)  I certainly
don't have anything against thru-hikers, but I'm a slow-walking kind of guy
that would probably create a traffic jam.  Any advice would be appreciated.
