Awesome hike, and awesomer hikers!
For the folks who came with me, many profuse apologies for missing the side trail to Chimney Rocks. I hope the side trip to the electrical tower made up for it :)
I hope you all had as great a time hiking with me as I did hiking with you. You all are totally awesome! Thanks for spending part of your Saturday with me!

Heads up everybody, we will be swapping the start and end points for the hike. There's a much larger parking lot at the Caledonia end, so by doing the swap we'll eliminate any potential parking woes. I'll make another post when the directions to the trailhead have been updated.
I still recommend carpooling. Save a tree, make some friends who will (hopefully) keep you from falling asleep on the way home, everybody wins. :)

I'd like to assume this is obvious to everyone, but we've gotten some questions about it, specifically for this hike, so I'm posting now to make sure its crystal clear:
It is NOT OK to just show up for a hike without rsvping. No. Never, ever, never.
It is not fair to the people who rsvp,
It is not fair to the people on the wait list,
It is not fair to the other hikers, and
It is not fair to the hike leaders.So, please, don't even ask.
I don't care who you are.
I don't care who you know (even me), or who you think you know.
If you're not on the list, you don't go.
Please folks, I make a better hike leader than a bouncer, but can do both if necessary. Please don't make me, 'cause it will make me sad, and nobody wants that. Well, apparently, almost nobody.

Hey everybody, looks like we've got a rapidly expanding wait list on this one, so once again I shall stand on my good ol' soap box:
If you are a no show on a full hike with a waiting list, know that you will have kept someone from attending the hike in your place. That makes me sad, very sad. So please, oh please, keep me happy and don't do it.
If your plans change, please, please, please, update your rsvp.

How to Move from the Wait list to a “Yes” - If you are on the wait list, you will get an e-mail as slots become available. It is a “first come first serve” system for available slots. Slots are open to everyone, whether on the wait list or not. However, being on the wait list will make certain that you are notified when open slots become available as well as letting me know to look for another leader if the trails (and parking) can accommodate it and still comply with our Leave No Trace pledge. Click the following link for how to get off the wait list and RSVP “yes”, http://www.midatlantichiking.co... Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need further assistance as that is what I am here for.
