Hi there @hunter-schaufel,
This may be relatively short notice, but I actually have a similar schedule and was looking to start out at Springer myself around the 15th of May.
The short notice is because I'm in the middle of switching jobs and was able to work in a month gap to do my first section hike. I had plans to go in June with a buddy, but the new job would wipe out my PTO, so its now or never for me.
Anyways, I'll be starting out there around then, so if you find a guy in his early 30s who loves bad jokes, feel free to say hi and tag along!
