I think this is the end of the line --- for now. We’ve about run out of both time and things to say even though there's a mountain of stuff that hasn't been said. You’ve gotten a bit of what we’ve written about the trail over the years, a lot (but not nearly all) of our opinions and thought processes, a lot of mechanical details --- even a little philosophy.
There is, of course, more we could say - certainly a lot more that most of you would still learn the hard way even if we told you about it. But "learning the hard way" isn't nearly as bad as you think. And it'll give you the pride that comes with overcoming the difficulties you encounter.
Personal opinion is that if you've actually gotten this far, the best thing you can do now is to throw half of it away, disbelieve half of what’s left and then burn the rest – kinda like the way you eat bear steak. Personal opinion is that your hike would be better if you do that.
In any case - we'll wish you an "interesting" hike. Which is VASTLY different from a "fun" hike.
