    You can do it there or on the AT. Just play it cool and setup and not make a big deal about it. People in the shelter will be happy to have the extra room.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?
    The hanger formly known as "hammock engineer".

    As far as I know. On the southern end of the smokies there is an offical campsite that is the site of an old shelter. It has bear cables and a water source. If you are concerned it might be worth a stop. I can't remember off hand where it is but it is in the guide book.
