Most of the crew was on time this morning but repacking and sending extra gear home took a little longer than I wanted. It was past 10 when we reached the trailhead. I stopped and talked with several groups of thru-hikers. It seems the Home Place AYCE buffet is still a propular place.
Mark and Aaron had great time taking in the views. I finally got them up to Dragon's Tooth. I think they now understand that the best views are at the top.
We are at Pickle Branch tonight after a 12.5 mile day. The rain is coming down and we're crowded into a small shelter with two thru-hikers.
Hope the rain stops by morning but if not we'll pull out the rain gear and hike on.
As for gear the Omni-Freeze did great today. The slightest breeze and I felt cool all over. I'll keep you updated on the other gear.
