    Hey Guys,

    I am still planning on being there, I will have at least 2 guys with me, they will be on the ground. We will be at Hobb's Friday, at Sawmill Saturday night, and Stage Coach Sunday Night. Should I change my route? Will there be no space at Hobbs Friday Night?

    "HA!" Somehow I think we have a different concept of 'balmy'! Actually I have hopes of needing my Hadron!
    I expect to be in Savage Gulf somewhere on Tues night. Working on a plan now.

    Swankfly, I don't see it being an issue. I'll chat with the Rangers tomorrow and post an update. Hangnout and or emcee if you all are not to far out I will try to meet up with you early Thursday for some day hiking.
    Afoot and light-hearted, I take to the open road,
    Healthy, free, the world before me,
    The long brown path before me, leading wherever I choose.

    I would need to be a few miles ahead of you so I could catch up at the end of the day

    The Ranger was in court today, so I wasn't able to get a definitive answer on camping, but we are simply going to have to take up a few sites in each camp for trees and logistics alone. The (non)ranger worker said it shouldn't be a problem, but I will speak personally with him, and left a detailed note.

    Important info:

    • Savage Gulf Ranger Station GPS Coordinates: N3526.058' W08532.385'
    • If you are arriving after dark on Thursday night the gates SHOULD NOT be closed
    • There are 8 primitive camp sites at the Ranger Station. Site 4 is a Group site, and I'll try to get in early to base there. Although I don't think it will work for all of us!
    • There is no fee for parking or camping, but we should try to minimize permits, so have your make/model/tag info ready and we can get all that on 2 or 3 permits as needed
    • I have Verizon and lost reception within a 1/2 mile of the station on Route 399. Again, I plan on setting up in the Group Site #4.
    • I will post another message on Chinese Food!!!

    Post hammock backpacking chinese buffet

    Okay Roche. Here are the options based on the Ranger Station Coordinates. Just call me 'Julie' your Cruise Director. I'm making suggestions, you make your decisions and pay Gopher (the purser) at your own liesure.

    • China Cafe--9.5 mi SE--Dunlap
    • Shan Chinese Buffet--21 mi SW--Monteagle
    • Peking Chinese Restaurant--23 mi NW--McMinnville
    • China Wok Restaurant--23 mi NW--McMinnville


    I hear good things about Shan, but I believe that would be out of the way for you East TN folks. Everything about Dunlap scares me...I apologize in advance if you are from Dunlap. I used to eat at China Wok quite regularly before dropping 75 lb, and I really enjoy it. It may be a few minutes out of the way, but not far.

    So there are your choices!

    Signed ~Julie
