My wife and I just got back from our first backpacking trip - Clingman's Dome to Elkmont via the AT to Miry Ridge and Jakes Creek trails. Thanks to everybody for the advice given. As some of you said, though, the best way to learn is to just go hike. It was a great experience. We met some good people at Silers Bald our first night, which got down to about 20 degrees, and campsite 26 on night two was excellent. Thanks again for the helpful input, it helped make our trip a great one.
