Are there any in the area who may be interested in certain weekend trips this Spring/Summer? The Triad group is great, but it's a "hike" to get there and back in a weekend.

What are some of your favorite spots in W. NC and E. TN?:banana

I'm in asheville, but will be moving stuff back into parents house in Atlatna to setup for a thru hike on st patrick's day. wish I woulda met some others on here thought that lived in the area instead of doing solo hikes all this time.

favorite spots:

SHINING ROCK !! (just south of graveyard fields on BRP)
Roan mountain park in TN
Grandfather Mountain, Boone, NC
Random waterfall trails in Brevard

probably lots more that I can't think of at the moment.
