Cathy, sounds like you really helped MS. But I didn't see where he had anything bad to say about you, or about Gatlinburg other than it was spendy. Mdionne said Gatlinburg isn't hiker friendly. Am I missing something?
Thank you very much for helping out a hiker - even if what you say is true and MS didn't show is appreciation, many hikers out here really do appreciate the help you gave another hiker. Please don't base your opinion of thru-hikers on this one experience.
