I am a NOBO section hiker looking to cross the Smokies this Spring. I want to leave my car on the East end by 1-40 and get a shuttle down to Fontana.

Any suggestions on an appropriate place to stash my car for 5 days (preferably at a motel if possible)?

Also, any suggestions on a shuttle from the East side of the Park where the AT crosses I-40 down to Fontana Dam?

Call Curtis Owen at Standing Bear Farm and Hostel (http://www.standingbearfarm.com/). His place is about a mile past I-40. You can safely park there and he will likely be able to shuttle you to Newfound Gap. Contact by phone is preferred.
