Jake at the Overlord Emergency Shelter. This is the official start of the trail, but we had already been walking for a little while. It was here that I discovered that the main buckle on my backpack was broken.  I was able to repair it with a little lockwire and a pair of pliers.  We didn't notice it until we were on our way back, but there is a little plaque on the side of this shelter.. it dedicates it to a follow who died of hypothermia in August of 1985.. I wish I had written down the name... if you have the name, please email me with it.
