Mom has recovered, she thinks it was something she ate. The plan mom and I have come up with is to head to GA tomorrow morning, arriving at my buddy's place around 1400-1500 hrs. It is then 2 hours from his place to the trailhead. Mom said she would like to "get on the trail" tomorrow, so if she is feeling good we will have him drop us off at the trailhead and camp nearby. There are two areas nearby where we could settle in for the night.
We are both so excited to get going!!
