    Thanks for watching and yeah ... we really do. Heck the forum chatter (on our site) gets hilarious for months before the gatherings. Like a bunch of kids at Christmas! Maybe you can join us or visit the Big Ditch sometime yourself. It's a wonderful place.

    Thanks for that great video Hawk-eye! And thanks to you, Jim, and L.D. Cakes for the hike and help finding the hat.
    I figured the bears would have it dragged off after 3 nights.
    It was a lot of fun to make an afternoon out of it!

    Glad that the missing Rat was located,

    and I must say, what magnificent country! Do I correctly recall that parts of "The Last of the Mohicans" was filmed in Linville Gorge? One of these days I must make a pilgrimage.........

    ABSOLUTELY Jim ... the fort was built at the boat landing south of Shortoff Mountain, the first attach when the sisters were coming was on the trails near Linville Falls, the last scene in the movie was filmed on the Chimney Ridge (where by the way the wife and I had a little ... ahem ... picnic years before Ms. Stowe stood there), and the chase scene in the canoes was filmed above the falls. Other scenes were filmed all over western NC

    One of my all time favorite movies

    More great adventures in the gorge

    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!
