    I have been thinking about starting at midnight and that way I can see the sunrise (hopefully) and head back down as everybody is just getting started. Crazy I know but really peaceful and scary.

    Probably around 5am. It still depends on what trails we're going to take.

    I never want to see a day
    That's over forty degrees
    I'd rather have it thirty,
    Twenty, ten, five and let it freeeeEEEEEEeeze!

    I know it's up there somewhere! I walked on it last year.

    Probably around 6:00 to get a bit ahead of the official start
