'Rain Man' following advice of seasoned AT thru-hikers -- take off your shoes and socks at every stop to let them dry and 'air out.' This is at Double Springs, where we stopped for breakfast and water.
Meet others in Nashville, middle Tennessee, and beyond, interested in backpacking. We also sometimes simply hike. We also kayak and kayak camp sometimes. But mostly we backpack! Talk about locations, equipment, tents, hammocks, packs, stoves, cameras and photography, clothing, weather, wildlife, food, recipes, etc., and find fellow hikers to take trips with. Classes, slideshows, and backpacking opportunities year round are available.
