Anyone planning on doing the Springer to U.S. 64/Standing Indian section in the second half of December, let me know if you want to arrange a car shuttle. I'm going SOBO from U.S. 64 to Springer.

There are plenty of pay shuttles, but I'm looking to arrange a free shuttle with another hiker. Let's say you're starting NOBO at Springer and ending at US 64 or thereabouts, we can meet at US 64, you leave your car and drive my car to Springer or vice versa. That way we each have our car waiting at the end of the hike without paying $100 + for a shuttle.

As to the weather, I love winter and cold weather. I sectioned the Smokies last winter in the snow and just got back from Glacier NP in Montana, where it snowed and got down to 8 degrees. Winter -- bring it on!

P.S. Some may not realize that coon ass is Louisiana slang for a (white) French Cajun. In some places coonass is slang for a negro, which can create a lot of confusion if you're from TN or someplace and don't know the difference.

Although I'm a North Georgia native I have done time in Breaux Bridge, Jennings, New Iberia, Morgan City and in a little swampy fish camp just outside Thibodaux. I went to learn how to cook in the coonass style and was richly rewarded for my efforts. Some of the most interesting and generous people I've come across before or since.

Never much paid attention to racial overtones, just fell in love with a culturally rich and diverse section of this big ole smorgasbord we call America.

You must be from up north, as they say in the Bayou, up 'Round Shreveport or Monroe.

Hacksaw the wannabe coonass
