Cynthia (Mama Bear), Raymond (Rain Man), and Sawnie (Kinnickinic) at Dickey Gap off VA 16, just south of Sugar Grove, VA. Friday evening at 6:00. Sawnie shuttled us to the trailhead. Ready to hike 40 miles, come what may! Used Stickpic for photo.
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.
