I won't be able to get to the trail until probably 11:00am, but that'll give me a lot of daylight and hopefully enough to make it all the way to Springer.

I'm watching the weather and figure I'm gonna get wet.  Not terribly worried about that (was in the Army and am convinced they scheduled every FTX based on when it was most likely to rain... If it ain't rainin' we ain't trainin').

I've got my planned route set in GaiaGPS and that's saying 7.5 miles and 2,375 feet of ascent .

Pretty excited !!
