Anyone Want To Join Me on a 28.8 mile AT hike

Im doing a 28.8 mile section of the AT starting at Nantahala Outdoor Center in Bryson City NC to Fontana Dam visitor center in Fontana NC...

We would meet at Newport News carpool place Friday night around 5 for the 8 hour drive to Bryson City, NC where we will spend the night at the hiker hostel so we can get a early start....
The First day we will need to hike about 15.8 miles to Brown Fork Gap Shelter... The next morning we would finish the hike with the last 13 miles.. We will finish up at Fontana Dam Visitor Center where we will get a shuttle back to our car...

      hey Jess... if you have no backpacking experience then you might want to start with a shorter/ warmer backpacking trip...
