    Thanks.. Storyteller and I have hit about 7 of the Percy Priest islands since our first Bear island hang with ya'll . Bear is a good one for bigger groups, but for smaller groups, Luau island is amazing. If we want to change it up a bit for our HF group, I'd recommend Rivers Bend Island, just to the east of Bear Island. Some amazing group spots, and free parking at Long Hunter State Park. About a 20 min paddle, and day trips to nearby Poole Knobs Island. 22 of the percy priest islands have campsites. I hope we can hit them all. http://www.nashville-vacation-fun.co...e-islands.html

    Neo, I will try to come on the 6&7. I doubt Hamhocker can get off since we are going on vacation the following week.

    I just put this hang on my calendar, though it's the weekend after I return from my Maine AT hiking trip on that Tuesday, so not positive I can take a third weekend off in a row. We'll have to wait and see.
