Hey Col Chaco and I aer doing the Smokies the end of March, if anyone wants to join us. This is our plan for the hike.

Mar 28- Fontana > Mollies Ridge 9.5 miles
Fontana > Russell Fields 12 miles

Mar 29- Mollies Ridge > Derrick Knob 8 miles
Russell Fields > Derrick Knob 12 miles

Mar 30- Derrick Knob > Mt Collins 13

Mar 31- Mt Collins > Mt Leconte 13.5 miles

April 1- Mt Leconte > Peaks Corner 12 miles

April 2- Peaks Corner > Cosby Knob 12 miles

April 3- Cosby Knob > Standing Bear 13 miles

I left the first day open so we can see how we feel, after the first big climb out of Fontana. Should be nice.

We'll see ya there. My brother and I are starting at the NOC on March 27 and hiking through the Smokies. I can't wait.

One of these days I will figure out how to get 4 to 6 months off from life and really live my life.

Hey there Little Bear. Snappy here-- I have been in touch with the Colonel and I will be joining you guys. We started a trip together last year but I fell ill and had to bail. NOt sure of my start date, I may have to hook up with you guys at the Gap. Take care-- see you out there--

Hi Little Bear,

I'll be in that area around the same time (see subject), and I'll keep my eyes peeled for you. Double peeled as a matter of fact, so I don't put myself between between you and momma bear. :>)
