Did FT Oct last yr from Oconee to Table Rock. We did resupply at Bad Creek.
We had alot of rain towards the end and Tornado warnings. We may do It again In Oct If we can't do AT In the Smokies. Since you are from around here you know about humidity and snake action. The week we did It It was the start of bear season. We had to walk right between a huge bear camp.
Have fun and be safe.
