    I still hang my food 95% of the time. Only had a bear approach me during lunch on the AT. Been bothered by a buck and his two does at night once cause I was stealth camped in the middle of his blueberry patch which probably wasn't too bear smart either.

    I reported on this deal in my trip report from the Sams Gap - Dennis Cove section. The owner of Doe River Hiker Rest / The Station at 19E is definitely a sleazebag based on his predatory practices at the 19E trailhead. A former used car salesman? That…

  • Winter Linville Gorge

    On February 27th, 28th and 29th I did a two night out and back trip from Wolf Pit Road trail-head to Table Rock mountain and back. In typical cafe fashion I planned this trip while driving 80 mph east on I-40 heading back from the Smokies. I stopped at a McDonald's to borrow some free Wifi to get a picture of a the trails and away I went. Going up Wolf Pit road in my 2002 Honda Accord was risky with the amount of ice and snow on the road. The final hill going down to the…
  • Great Smoky Mountain National Park

    On February 25th and 26th I did a nice loop in the Smokies from Big Creek Ranger Station parking lot to Deep Gap along the AT south of Mt. Cammerer fire tower. There was about 6 to 8 inches of snow while going up. I stealth camped due to the amount of snow coming in and the next day went down the Big Creek trail. Overnight there was another 6 to 8 inches of snow and freezing fog.
