    I neglect to check HF for a week,

    and something juicy like this shows up!

    I have already committed to a yet-unscheduled Assateague canoe/camp trip for "sometime" in April, but that plan is in flux. Robbinsville NC is only 7 hours from St.Albans WV, and I love the Smokies, so I am going to pencil this one in.

    I went digging through my NC maps and found the one from Santeetlah lake. If you can get one of these it has a lot of info on it compared to the one online.

    Cakes, I have no idea where I got it from. I don't remember if I got it before or during the trip

    Rock Slide on the Dragon

    Blount County authorities say a rock slide has closed all lanes of Hwy. 129, known as "The Dragon."

    Crews say they first got the call just before 5 a.m. Friday morning. Police dispatchers say the slide happened near Calderwood Dam near the Powerhouse.

    This is on the other side of Lake Santeetlah, if you travel through Robbinsville the road is still open. But if you plan to come the other way you'll need to take a detour. Hopefully they will get this cleared up before our trip. It really depends on how bad it is. I'll keep an eye on the situation.

    I'm glad it waited a week and a half, or y'all might not get to kayak with me!!!

    There were a lot of construction and workers' vehicles at Calderwood Dam when I came though. Some kind of work going on at the Dam.

    They showed the slide on the TV news and it didn't look too bad. Said it should be cleared by Monday. Keep your fingers crossed.
