    That would be nice, but I can not even find a good journal program that will coexist with WhiteBlaze. So chances are this will not happen here.

    Maybe for the time being there could be a link to a list and links to members journals on other sites where they hammocked the whole way. That could be a useful resource for someone asking questions about long term hammock use.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    In '08 I plan to use my hammock the whole way. The target start date is 6 April - but I will take the BMT for the first 12% of the trail. Maybe I will see her out there.

    Shelters in the Smokies

    The rules are like this for using shelters in the GSMNP. These rules are the thruhiker rules:

    1: A thruhiker is one that BEGINS his hike at least 50 miles before and ENDS 50 miles After the GSMNP.

    2: Generally there are 3 to 4 shelter spots always open for the thruhikers. Example is a 12 person shelter, the Park service will only book or reserve 8 of the spots, leaving 4 open for the thrus.

    3: The thrus are required to use the shelters UNTIL they become full. After that time it is ok to tent within 50 feet of the shelter.

    4: Generally a thruhiker will go ahead and tent outside HOPING that the shelter becomes full by nightfall. If a Ranger or trailrunner appears, give him your shelter spot for the night If any of this causes a problem, move to the shelter. At Mollies Ridge in 2006, we had 25 tents OUTSIDE the shelter, a Ridgerunner was there, a Ranger was there and everyone was happy. This was on April 15, 2006. Use common sense, BE NICE and everything will work out fine. The Ridgerunners and Park Rangers main job is to prevent too many people being at one spot or shelter at a time. They may ask you where you are going tomorrow and make a suggestion based on the number of hikers they expect to arrive where you are going. This is a suggestion only but worth considering. If a Ridgerunner gives you a hard time as a thruhiker, you are probably a real loser to begin with

    I live right outside the park and my hiking friend is: SGT Rock

    We hope to see all the class of 2007 as they come through

    Welcome to Gods Country and have a great hike !!
