    I'm so ready. I hated getting off the trail in June on my 135 mile shake down hike. If you wanna see it go to my YouTube channel

    Is anybody here doing a flip-flop? I'll hopefully run into some of the rest of you at some point, just looking to find fellow floppers to start with.

    I'm hoping they'll do the Flip Flop festival again next year in Harpers Ferry. If so, I'll be leaving the Sunday of whatever weekend that is, which might be the 16th if it follows this year.

    I'm also planning on starting around Flip-flop Festival time. Working on the logistics of the train-ride down from the Boston area.

    I've never been a commuter train. Now you have me thinking about a change in travel plans!

    Had planned to do a flip flop this year but stuff got (knee replacement last year) in the way. Next year it's Katie bar the door...flip flop from Springer 2 April. Got all excited last fall and over the winter, now in a bit of a lull and beating back the disappointment of having to wait. But come fall I'll be building up my distance hikes and as mentioned above "chomping at the bit" to go!!

    March 1st or the 18th. Depends if I want to go to trail days. If I do then March 18th. If not it's the first. I'm leaning more towards the first.

    Fireplug, I'm starting March 1st and I haven't tossed out the idea of hitching back to Damascus. Just an idea, don't let time be a constraint!

    Yeah I get the ride back to Damascus and all. But if I'm going to trail days I'd like it to be with the people I been seeing on the trail. But I did think of that. I'm still leaning towards the 1st. More time and not chancing a injury that could make Katadhin a time issue. I'm 90% sure it's March 1st.

    That's why I'm doing March the 1st ! Plenty of time and low miles to begin with to avoid injuries

    I'm planning on April 5th. I'm hoping that mid-week is less crowded at Springer! Can't wait. Did a 65 mile checkout in MA last month and met lots from the class of 2016. They are having fun. I even got to experience some great trail magic.
