I had a friend who was going to pick up my car at Standing Bear and drive it down to Fontana Dam but he had to cancel his hiking trip.
I would like to hike SOBO thru GSMNP starting on the morning of Oct 9th and finishing on the 12th. This way I will not have to take any vacation time.
If there is anyone interested in hiking from Fontana north starting on the 9th I would not have a problem meeting you at SB and having you drive my car to Fontana Dam and leaving it at the Visitors Center. That way you can hike at your own pace back to your vehicle.
I don't have to hike SOBO but it seems to work out better when I do.
