I think we are leaving the same day from SJPP. I arrive late on the 31st and was planning to get my bearings on the 1st and start walking on the 2nd. I too am going alone so maybe we can meet for coffee.
Joined a hiking group, and am preparing, obsessing over contents of pack, wouldn't mind meeting up with some fellow walkers in SJPP either late on 1st September or for breakfast on 2nd September before starting off to Orrison.
