You are just too nice for words!
We have this separate off-line thread among some of my gal-pals met through
the WomenHikers group. A few of us have been trying to figure out a way to
"kidnap" a friend who could use a break. One of those kidnapper-wanna-be's
could use a break herself, but may not be able to get away from her family
obligations. We started kicking around bringing the "voluntarily kidnapped"
friend to the one who couldn;t get away. Now my co-ringleader has wrecked
her vehicle. What a mess!
I will try to sort out what I can over the weekend. Do men let things get
this complicated, or is it just how the convoluted female brain works???
Thank you so much for your most kind offer. I would LIIKE to take you up on
it, if I can manage the trip.
I never cease to be amazed at how kind the Trail Community is to each other.

Okay, we are getting some of the parameters nailed down. I did a
little looking at my maps and made some estimates (if someone has done
this before and knows better, please speak up). With a noon airport
dead line the MARTA connection doesn't fit in well.
The 1 mile walk on the AT from Springer to the parking lot: 1/2 hour.
The 6.5 mile drive on Forrest Service Road 42 to Doublehead Gap Road:
100 mile drive from there to ATL airport: 2 hours.
I'm figuring your best case is that it will take 3 hours to get you
from Springer to the ATL airport. Can you make that work? If you can
I can drive you all the way to the airport.
