I got notice of an Update, but not sure what it was. Also, is there an option to campout Saturday night? If not, are there hotel rooms very close by?

I had a wonderful time. It was a great hike and I met lots of nice and interesting guys. It was wise to combine the hike with the Blaze group. The only sad part is that everyone I met lives so far away.
