The forecast in the Smokies for the weekend has steadily worsened - from 60s/40s to 50s/30s. The rain chance went from 20% to 60% for Saturday and thunderstorms for my hike out Sunday. It could be a cold and wet trip.
I had set my tent and pad out last night while packing, just in case. This morning when packing the car I left them at home. I'm kind of proud of myself; I haven't hung in significant or lasting rain yet so this weekend could be quite an adventure. What is more, this could end up being a solo trip as one friend cancelled and I haven't heard from the other in a week. Going to charge the Kindle and put some books on it tonight though I hope to get enough sun to do a bit of fishing on Saturday.
It looks like those of you hanging in RRG this weekend might have nasty weather as well. May your tarps keep you dry and your backsides remain warm.
