Take care of yourself, Nan! The trip can wait! Sorry for your loss!
0 · August 29, 2013
So sorry to hear of your loss. My mother died this May so I know too well how your feel. Getting away to a beautiful place can be very healing, so hope you will be able to do this trip another time soon.

grrrrr Iam going to miss this one. Icant make it at 7:00 pm not even at I think. You guys should do it on weekends
again, a million apologies, I didn't know/remember that this trip was actually set/scheduled. My Dad became terminally ill and died a few weeks ago. I've been dealing with all that and am not financially, physically, emotionally able to lead this trip. I also used up all my days off. I promise to schedule and actually organize this trip next year. If I knew how to cancel this trip on the site I would. I hope everybody is getting the message.

I'd love to attend but I need more information about the trip.
I just joined to this group. How can I get more information about this trip?
I wish that I go. Have fun

Folks, I didn't remember this was scheduled untiil it came up on my email. My father died a few weeks ago and before that he was ill and incapacitaeted/beridden. I am sorry that this wasn't canceled months ago, but I didn't even remember that I had agreed to do it. I am in no shape emotionally, mentally or financially to make this trip, but the Smokies are lovely in the fall and I hope that you make this trip on your own. Again, sorry sorry sorry

sounds great, but not in the cards for me right now
0 · July 15, 2013
sounds like fun. I wanna go but iam not sure if can make it on time after work that day.
I'd like to go. I need some more info before I can commit for sure. What are the dates and as someone asked below, how strenuous of a hike will this be. Hotel or tent sleeping?
0 · July 6, 2013
I would love to go but need info. What days are involved? Are you planning on camping or staying at a hotel? Would it be possible to catch a ride with someone?
3 · July 6, 2013
I am new to this area. Where are the smokies?
How long is this trip expected to last?
0 · June 24, 2013
Sorry. My mom won't let me go
0 · June 20, 2013
I'd love to go. My mom just needs to know what the location is

Is this just a weekend hike?
0 · June 17, 2013
Is this strenuous hiking or light hiking for those of us who are light hikers?
2 · June 7, 2013
Sounds like a lot of fun.

Oh Gosh! That sounds great! It's so beautiful and peaceful up there! Just wondering about what kind of wild life would be there.
0 · May 8, 2013
have hiked northern tip of the AT. Its beautiful. I'm sure the southern portion is just as nice.
0 · April 21, 2013
would like to finally get to attend an event or two and would love to go back to the smokies too. Need more info so I can get off and make plans.
0 · March 19, 2013
Worked in Boone NC for two years - would like to get back and spend time in the Smokies. Would definitely attend a planning meeting.
0 · February 26, 2013
I love the Smokies...... When is the event?
0 · February 21, 2013
Sound interesting. I would like to get more information.
0 · February 16, 2013
We would be interested. I'd rather spring than late summer, (gets too hot).
0 · January 16, 2013
I was just up there during the Hurricane Sandy Blizzard. We were on Wesser Bald on the Appalachian Trail with 20 degree temps and 40-50 MPH winds. I would guess the weather will be a bit milder this time around. ;-)
I'm pretty familiar with the area around the Nantahala Outdoor Center, Fontana dam, Bryson City, and points in between. I've stayed at a couple of the National Forest Service campgrounds around there and backpacked on the AT south of the SMNP. There is a place I'd really like to visit again in the SMNP that is a nice day hike down to the lake.

I will plan to attend, but will have to see when plans firm up if it works out for me.
Sounds fun.Need more details

Have never been there, would like to
0 · December 6, 2012
I'm all in
0 · November 27, 2012
I'm out in.
Why don't we set up a meeting somewhere so we can discuss details; then we can see what sites are available, and how much money is involved. Most public libraries have meeting rooms you can reserve...
0 · November 18, 2012
Cathy....wanna take the lead on the meeting place?
Cathy.....most people live in New Orleans and Metairie. Guess a library centrally located somewhere in those areas. Anyone who needs a ride from Mandeville-Hammond area can go with me.
Sounds like fun. What area are you looking to go into?
Sounds good let me time and place
I love love to take a trip to the Smokies I have a small RV.Need more details
Been their on motorcycle many times. I know the area but need to know....camp, hotel, cabin for everyone to share, how much money we want to spend, etc......
1 · November 17, 2012
I would love to go.been there once wish I had spend more time.
0 · October 27, 2012
Is anyone planning this? I have never been there, but I think it would be a great trip, especially if we could go to see the fall leaf color in the region!
0 · August 25, 2012
I don't think any one is planning it.
Sounds like a good trip. Anyone want to take over planning it? I've never been so I'm probably not a good person to plan it.
0 · August 6, 2012
I still would love to go just need a date
0 · July 19, 2012
This was suggested by another member who had no luck when it came to commitment from interested parties. If anyone wants to take the lead on this they are more than welcomed.
Anything on the smokies trip?
0 · June 28, 2012
As long as I have a good advance notice and I can make the dates. I will attend.
0 · June 22, 2012
I loved the 2009 Smokies trip and would love to go again, it was beautiful. Carpool only for me this time. Im in a Tahoe with a toddler.
