anyone planning on going?
“or want to go?
my dad's getting a chalet in Gatlinburg for Thanksgiving so i was gonna plan a hike starting saturday morning.
we could probably accomodate some people friday night at our chalet if necessary.(i'll have to ok it with my family but i think it should be cool with them)
i'd also be willing to camp friday night, however it needs to work is fine, if anyone's interested.
don't have an itinerary yet, so im open to suggestions.”
“i'll be in the smokies for 8 days in nov. still going back and forth on the dates. either 17-24th or 22- the sunday after thanksgiving”
“maybe we can meet up. i can bring you some leftovers:)
on the other hand, from what i've been reading, you're not very much fun to hike with, sooooo. jk
let me know when you get your plans together”
“i have a pretty good route laid out already and have a pretty good handle on the area. just let me know”
“what do you mean not much fun to hike with. where did you read that? look at the sipsey thread and the 101 ways to eat and drink your way to a lighter pack thread. or any of the dodder threads or bbinkley threads...
“I am going to the UT/KY game Saturday, but let me know y'all's itinerary cause I will probably dayhike on Sunday, and I can catch up with ya if it is possible!! OO - wait, I got Friday off so if you are hiking then too - I can join!”
“Bbinkley - make sure you let me know which week you decide cause I might change the iten. if you ain't gonna be at the CS Monday night, the 18th!”
“does your boyfriend still have off then too? the bigger the group the better in my book.”
“Kentucky is playing Arkansas. UT always has an off week before playing Bama.”
“i was thinkin bout doin chimney tops friday morning”
Yeah, he has off...
“We both plan to be hiking around that Mon, tues, and wed. But, I can't get anyone else to join because of classes on weekdays. I don't know enough backpackers around here!! It doesn't matter if you go the week of Thanksgiving of the week before - just let me know so I can re-work my itenary in case you aren't going to be there.”
“how far is that from NY?”
“I've done Chimney Tops a couple of times. There's a manway up it that is tough. It is near the bridge over the creek at the beginning.
That will be awesome staying in a chalet over Thanksgiving - if you like beer and a colorful local crowd, go to Puckers in Gatlinburg if you get a chance.”
“I'm going to be up there the same week. I'm actually going to be staying in Pigeon Forge, but was planning on doing some hiking. I would definitely like to hook up with some of you guys. I'll be up there from that Tues until Sat.”
