Excellent breakdown. More frequent milestones toward the end, aid in motivation.

And celebrate we did. I had estimated 10 - 11 hours for my first Skyline, but with Ellen's most excellent motivational speech ("I'll buy you a beer"), I came in at 9 hours to Grubbs Notch.

Thank you to all for your support, encouragement, and advice.


P.S. And now I get it. It's actually a very fun and very scenic trail.
