    I know they still make fords but don't expect to see any new pontiacs.

    There will be 3 creek crossings on the way out Sunday morning. They are near the junction of Laurel Fork Creek Trail and Black House/Jacks ridge trails. If it has been raining some parts could be knee high.

    Then we will have to deal with those fast moving Chevy's (horses)

    so is that the Litton Farm Loop/Fall Branch trail? I always did the JMT to get to the Grand Gap Loop Trail

    Who cares about showers, gourmet food, using flush toilets. Just keep on walking and being away from it all.

    There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.

    Yes, it is the Fall Branch Trail. The campsite is the last creek crossing before the Grand Gap Loop junction
