    The Plan:
    Meet at Appalachia by 6:45 to distribute gear. We need to be moving by 7am.
    If the weather is pleasant we will take the Airline Trail to Madison Springs Hut.
    If the weather is marginal we will take Valley Way.
    We will break at the hut to regroup and stock up on water.
    The route is 4.2 miles to the summit with 4100 ft of elevation gain.

    What to expect:
    According to MWOBS data for September temps can range from 9 to 69 degrees with average daily temps between 36 and 46 degrees. It may be windy too.
    We plan to be on the summit for two hours so bring proper gear:

    The Flag:
    If anyone on the team has a Flag and rigging it will be most welcome. Please let me know.
    The big challenge is tying it down in a manner that will stand up to the winds at 5000’.

    Photos:
    Anyone who has a camera please bring it along, take lots of pictures and post them to the Gallery on FOT48 website.
