    Tell me a little more about what goes on and for how long. I have to work Saturday, but will be hiking somewhere Saturday. I am not far from Franklin. Is there anything that goes on that is inappropriate for a 7 year old on Sunday?

    There will be plenty of good food, some great music provided by some fine local musicians, there will most likely be some social beer drinking. In other words, the weekend is perfectly appropriate for anyone to attend.

    So if I have a 6 and a 7 year old who idolize hikers and ask thousands of questions of hikers (and have been around "social" beer drinking), I would be OK to come on up to Franklin? So long as there will be good music, good eats, and no inappropriate behavior Sunday, I very well may be there. What times?

    There might be a lot of smiling, laughing, music, dancing, and food.

    Smokestack and I will be there.

    So the goings on will still be going on Sunday afternoon? Do I have time for a 3 or 4 miler somewhere close with the kids and then to come over to Ron's?

    It'll most likely be winding down by then.

    Here's a tentative schedule:

    Wish I could Ron, really, but I work this Saturday until 2 then my wife has us committed to some snazzy birthday party for some doctor she works with. But the BD Party has free booze, free food, and live band. Almost as good as Ron haven's, but no hiker trash!! I'll catch you guys next year for sure!!

    Sorry to disappoint.....but if I make it....I think that only D-Town reps will be me, and the honorary Damascinian, Yuma.
    We're the cool kids that are going to Asheville on friday for another show.

    Hey Ron, I swear one of these years I am going to get to come!!! I start out at Springer Tuesday(for my Springer to Newfound Gap section), so I am spending my last weekend at home with my daughter and Gungho. I can't wait to see you in a couple weeks or so. I hope everyone has a great time and stays safe. Hopefully I'll get to see you all at Trail days.

    OH YEAH...You guys don't do anything I wouldn't do!!!
    HAPPY TRAILS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD HIKE!
