    Hanging near Ashville this weekend

    I'll be driving to Ashville, NC Saturday morning to get my bike serviced, and figured...why waste the trip.

    So here's the deal, I need suggestions on where to hang within 2 hours of Ashville.

    Anyone wanting to join me is welcome. I expect it'll be dropping to the 20s at night and, being cheap, don't expect a fee for hanging.

    I look forward to your suggestions,

    Parkway is basically closed. I suggest going to Black Dome Outfitters on Tunnel Road. They can steer you the right direction.

    Thanks CrawlDaddy, I'll look into them.

    By the way, this is/can be a backpacking trip rather than car camping.

    Never been there myself, but I've heard there's good quasi-car camping off North Mills Road south west of Asheville just behind the asheville regional airport. Better directions anda trip report below. I may be interested in joining you if I can get off work, but doesn't look too promising.

    "The Road goes ever on and on,
    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can.
    Pursuing it with eager feet
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say."

    You could get taste of the AT. Drive north towards Erwin, TN. The AT crosses the road at the State Line. Head North on the AT - camp overnight - then walk out to Uncle Johnny's Hostel ( schedule a ride back to your car ).

    Sorry - I just realized you were without transportation..!

    I'm not without transportation , I'm just more efficient.

    The bike should be done around 10:30am, and I'll head out then. My challenge with the AT is finding a ride back to the bike.

    Thanks,
    Mike
