It didn't matter much other than the fact that I knew that I had the Hogpen Gap 6.5 mile climb still to come. I didn't want to blow out my legs before I started that climb.  [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpMav6At5no]     Here is a little video of a white blaze of the AT (Appalachian Trail) on the top of Hogpen Gap. This is more than a...
