    I'm (re)starting 03Apr2019.

    IdahoVagabond - I started 4/09 this year and it was fairly crowded through the smokies. Crowds picked up again around Damascus but nothing too terrible.

    Just FYI, it doesn't technically close. At Rangers discretion, or no later than October 15th, BSP is closed to overnight camping. Considering it is around a 4 hour climb, a 4 hour descent and then hike in and out....in early October with few daylight hours...is the issue.

    Maybe, chances get better everyday as 2018 creeps along. If so, end of February 2019 start. If not, 2020 but lets not think like that.

    Have my date set at a March 18th! Going to be getting to Georgia the day prior (in from Cali). I'm not sure if I'm going to be doing the approach trail as of yet, too busy gathering my gear and dealing with other anxieties to worry about that now.

    Hey All! Was hoping to full thru hike in 2019 but just wasn't able to make it work. Instead I will be doing a 2 month long section hike. Hoping to start May 13 around Damascus for trail days and the head NOBO from there. Hoping to make it to the New Jersey/New York border. Shooting for 800+ Miles. Hope to see you all out there. Will be looking to meet people at Trail Days. Let me know if you would be interested meeting up! You should all be well warmed up at that point
