    I’d love to have you guys, but I need to keep this group pretty small. I suspect campsites near McAfee will pretty scarce being a fall weekend. That said, some spots will probably open up. Or if you’d like to lead a group, we can add a second trip on a different weekend.

    Thank you, Brian: looking forward to backpacking with you guys. ????

  9. Kristen W. 6 months ago

    I would like to be put on the wait list, please. This is my first experience with this group. So, I have a question…. Can I meet you all there and bum a ride back to the start?

    Since we have so much interest, is there anyone with backpacking experience who would be willing to lead a McAfee Knob trip on a different weekend?

  11. Kristen W. 6 months ago

    I would love to. I could do a different weekend or lead a 2nd group on this weekend. I hiked 500 miles of the AT this summer. So, I have a little experience.

    Attention wait listers! I just got off the phone with Kristen (a.k.a. Snapchat), and she has agreed to lead a second trip on the weekend of 11/3-11/4. Same itinerary. Kristen has hiked 500 miles of the A.T. (including McAfee), so she knows what she’s doing! 🙂 Sign up here:

    The forecast calls for subfreezing temperatures Saturday night. I’m not really a winter backpacker, and my sleeping bag isn’t rated for temps that low. What do you guys think?

  14. Kristen W. 5 months ago

    I am not going to come. I am just going to section hike during the day Friday, Sat and Sunday. No need to risk hypothermia.

    I’ll give it another day or two. Unless the forecast changes, or unless someone else wants to lead it, I’ll probably postpone until next spring.

  16. Kristen W. 5 months ago

    you guys are KILLING me….

  17. Leigh S. 5 months ago

    Must cancel reluctantly. I’ve been gone so long a few things require my attention. I hope you have a great trip. Take a hot water bottle for your sleeping bag and laugh at the cold!!

    Due to the forecasted subfreezing overnight low Saturday night, I have rescheduled this for the first weekend in May. Please cancel your RSVP and request a refund if the new date doesn’t work for you. Stay warm!

    Commenting for waitlist purposes

  20. JoeGiasullo 5 months ago

    May 5th is my anniversary, so I will not be going. However, I will hang on to my spot and hope for a rain delay.

  21. JoeGiasullo 4 months ago

    wrong thread. I’m an idiot.

  22. joanoberle 4 months ago

    waitlist please!

    • JoeGiasullo 4 months ago

      You can plan on going if the date does not change as I cannot make the 5/4 weekend (it’s my anniversary). I’m just holding on to the spot just in case of a rain delay and/or divorce; both are likely.
