Hey there, Navigator!

On my thru in '03, I believe I was at Dicks Creek Gap at 7 days, and that was a short day into Neels Gap with an overnight stay there.

Good luck!  And, enjoy!

P.S. I still need to get with you sometime regarding that item I want to purchase from you.  Will you be around "home" after Christmas?

It's been only ... oh ... 16 years since I joined AT-L and started planning a thru-hike. Life sure has led me in a lot of crazy directions, many of them still hiking-related, thank goodness, but my thru is closer than ever. 

This year, a trial run: the fates have aligned. Serendipity is with me. 

1) I've been invited to be a guest author for Dahlonega Trail Fest. Which happens to be at the early part of thru-hiker season. 
2) My birthday is a week later, and it's a biggie for me. I've wanted to celebrate this one on the AT.
3) A good friend is heading to the trail to start his thru, so we can do this piece together. 

I am planning for Springer on March 19. Given I'm a strong hiker, but a flatlander (who, thank goodness, kept her winter gear) how far north might a week's worth of hiking take me?

Cheers, Navigator
