Plan is to drive up to Mulberry Gap on Saturday and stay there for the evening. Sunday morning, MG will shuttle us up to the northern trail origin and we will ride about 80 miles and camp on the trail. Monday we will ride another 80ish to the AL border where the fine folks at MG will pick us and take us back to our cars. Shower, camp, leave Tuesday morning.
Bring it if you can hang. You will need cold-weather clothes, sleeping kit, h2o carrying ability, repair kit, and the like.
