Laura: I wouldn't be bold enough to tell you what to do -- plenty of others
here are happy to do that ;-)   -- but I do want to provide some data that
may correct a misperception and help you to make your decision. Where the
herd exists, it's dozens, not hundreds.
ADZPCTKO organizer Sam Merten made these observations in 2006:

"This is my estimate of hikers on the trail Sunday after the kick-off.
Sunday 15 to 19 left the border 40 to 45 hiker out from the kick-off - 15 to
20 were drop off in Mt.Luguna area 10 to 12 were drop at scissors 10 to 15
were drop off at Warner springs 10 to 15 drop way up the trail. I got these
numbers from hikes and the ride board at the kick-off."

That year we had 157 thru hikers registered to attend the KO, which is the
all-time high.
