Hey Pix! The only difference between the 'summary' and 'plan' examples are comments. The 'new planner' does not show comments....

Pressure D - AT - Apr 19, 2013 - Day 12 Mile 129.2 Tellico Gap
When I woke today the storm was just beginning. I packed up in the rain and wind. I started down the trail at 7am. Turbo had just left but Cobalt was snoring away in his tent. As I hiked the rain turned to sleet and was blowing perpindicular to the ground. I had planned to hike 11 miles to Rufus Morgan Shelter but was worried that the people who stayed there last night may have not moved on. As I was approaching Tellico Gap I made a very smart decision. I was going to call the Aquone Cabins and Hostel. The Hostel is run by Maggy and Steve (Wiggy 2010). Steve raced up to the gap to pick me up. This place is amazing. They have everything all figured out and know exactly what a hiker needs. I showered and have already had my laundry done. I lost my pot stand for my alchol stove and Steve has given me full access to his workshop , where he has made all the furniture in the hostel. I'm not sure where my Buddy's are, but I hope the are safe and We can meet up again before We all head into the smokies.
