I want to thank all that showed for the hike. It was great to see old friends and new faces. Our base camp as always was a fun time , thanks for being there. The hike went well. We covered the 12+ miles in just under 5 hours with a 1 hour lunch break on trail. This avg. out to just above a 2.5 mph pace. Not bad for a group as large as we had.
The weather was nice. A bit warm for this year, but if anything it gave some a new outlook on warmer weather backpacking.
I wanna thank the group of base campers and hikers from GA that showed up. Was good to see you all again. Also great job to the females, those that hiked and held down base camp. You all did awesome. Glad to see you all made this your second hike, and were already talking about "next time...".
Hope to see everyone again at the next one.
