     Well, today was starting day. I woke up at 3:30 A.M...  Foley brought me to the airport for an early flight. I landed in Atlanta.   Delta misplaced  my bag.  What a way to start!  I took a $160 cab ride to Amicalola Falls State Park.  It was pouring out!  It was a sign of things to come!  I registered as hiker number 252 for the year and my pack weighed in at 36 lbs. Not too bad!  As I started up the trail, I met up with Russell and his 60lb pack.  There were over 600 stairs to the top of the falls!  Worst of all there was a parking lot at the top.  I stayed at Springer Mountain (the official starting point).  We had a full shelter since a group of Virginia Tech girls on spring break showed up.
