what time does everyone try to be on the trail?....we started at 6 am last year and im thinking id like to leave even a little earlier this year....we were so close to making it to the top and having it be clear but didnt quite make it....i know its not a guarantee but i was interested if anyone ever started out earlier than 6am....also....it wont stop us but i was wondering will anyone be re considering the hike due to the gas prices?....i know some people travel a good distance....
