    Looks awesome - makes me miss my Smokies trip! Your trout lunch made me hungry! My pack was too stuffed to fit my fishing gear in there, but a couple times I wished I had it.

    Well that looks just GREAT! I'm going to have to take my 2 Grandsons on that exact trip, Lord willing!

    So how did you get past the hornets?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    Short video

    Here's a short video from my hammock during the trip. It's nice to wake up in a hammock!

    I have an endless supply, but I'm really not a grits man. Don't tell my dad.

    I'm ready to go back, I really miss the smokies!

    Update on campsites

    Peg-Leg,
    I am looking at doing an overnight in that same area Thanksgiving weekend with my brother and son. We are considering campsites 57 or 58. Can you tell me if you recall spotting any good hanging spots when you hiked by those? Hoping for some good views in the fall....
