Pre Gaming: Neel's Gap

The first stop was here, which is the lovely brook near Neels Gap:

We decided to fill up with some local water (Katadyn filter pump) before packing up to set off on our way.

It took everyone a bit to hoist up their packs and get moving. There was also a short debate about whether to bring the crash pad with us in one trip versus me having a sprint down the mountain and back up again. I trusted Marcus's expertise on the matter, and so we hoisted it above our heads and swapped carriers at intervals.

Which is how you can tell I was both carrying and taking pictures on the first section. Since longer term parking is down the road from the trailhead a ways we had to hike a bit before we could hike a bit...
