Am going on my fourth trip to the AT around 1st or 2d week in Sept. I plan to drive from Deltona, Fl to NC shuttle motel called (the Hike Inn) shuttle down to the Nantahala Outdoor Center and hike to Fontana Dam and be picked up by shuttle there. (wonderful people at the Hike Inn used them before). This is about a 30 mile hike. Should take three days with a fourth day as buffer. 8 hours driving from Deltona. Anyone interested I am going anyway so its a free ride up and back from wherever you get picked up. E mail at williepaul66@hotmail if interested.
