Title: Short notice, but is anyone up for a backpacking trip starting Monday 5/30
Post by: possessed on May 24, 2011, 18:39:57 PM
I'm planning a backpacking trip in GSMNP starting Monday 5/30, likely to stay 2-3 nights.  Either Deep Creek or Cataloochee area.

Anyone up for it?  I have done a few solo backpacking trips would really prefer to not solo.  It gets creepy out there at night all alone.   :o

If I can't find a partner, I may go alone or just car camp at Smokemont and fish that area.

You would need to have your own gear and I ain't sharing a tent with anyone. 

I also cuss a lot and smoke a lot of cigarettes.

Tranny,

You ever fished the "gorge" section you refer to?  I have some friends that Kayak that every time it rains enough.  I want to hike/fish that sometime but did not ever figure I could find anyone dumb enough to go with me....

Possessed,

Been up in there, a very imposing place it is. I went a few hundred yards before I figured I would be in the obituary section of Swain County newspapers so bailed. One of these days...

No, that's why I specified I ain't sharing a tent with anyone.  I figured that would clarify the situation.   :D

I was supposed to be out there this week and would have been more than glad to let you share our campsite. You would have given me an excuse to dump the wife and kids to drown some feathers but we were screwed on planning and funds. I am holding off until July. 

sorry

Maybe we can get together another time.  I'll be going again in July.
