March 18th (out of order)

Arrive in Gainesville on a delayed Amtrak train, and because of delays, lost shuttle spot. Yes, could get taxi but feel some support is needed for shuttle drivers, so decide to wait. Shuttle shows up at 4:45. Went and picked up a second hiker Jake from Maine.

Fast forward, we get dropped off at the to of Mount Springer, and walk the 0.9 miles to the camp area and shelter. Decide to camp to get the practice in. Supposed to be warm, but turned into windy, rainy, and a little bit cold.

 Say hi to other hikers (Billy Goat, Achin, Boone, among others) but it's not a night for socializing so I raggedly put up tent and try to get some sleep.
