White Trash hike and float

It's time to break out the Daisy Dukes and your wife beater t-shirts and join GSHAG for a White Trash hike and float!
The trip will begin at 9:00 a.m. at Tube Junction for a short shuttle to Wears Valley Road. From there we will hike the Round Top Trail to the Townsend Y. This is a 7.5 mile trail that ends with a knee deep water crossing of the Little River at the end. The water crossing should warm everyone up to grab your tube for a leisurely float back down to Tube Junction. Afterwards we will grab something to eat at Campfire Grill. Here we can vote for the best "White Trash" costume of the day. Bonus points if you already have a mullet!
The cost will be $6 for the tube rental and $4(or less depending on how many people show up) for the shuttle.
Please be there on time because we all leave at the same time.

    Hi Lynn.
    Just sent you an email. I have two others who won't be doing the hike, but want to meet the group at the Y for the float trip. Please give me a quick call tonight to confirm this plan is ok with Brian. My email has the phone number. Thank you.

      Thanks David for helping work this out - we need to recruit brad and Anita someday!!

    Hi! I can't hike very well because of my hip but I would love to float if it's a sunny day--can I just meet you all at the Y or would I have to go for it solo at the Tube Junction and find you??

    1 · August 2, 2014

    • Lynn

      The best bet would be for you to rent a tube & meet us at the Y. We should be there around 2 or so. We can shuttle you back to your vehicle after the float. We should be fairly easy to spot!

      August 4, 2014

    • ajeet k.

      got it, okay i will see you there at 2ish IF it's sunny!

    Brian is having Internet issues so if you have a question or anything just post it here & I will try to get the message to him. We just found out the Tube Junction does not open til 10 AM so plan to meet a little before then at the Tube Junction parking lot. Please be on time as we need you to pay for your tube so we can shuttle them to the Y. The number of people going also affects the price - if we have less than 10 it will be $8 each.

    2 · August 4, 2014

    • Lynn

      Roger, you can just meet us at Tube Junction a little before 10. We will shuttle tubes down as soon as they open so we can drop your car off then.

      1 · August 4, 2014

    • ajeet k.

      okay so if we want to just tube and not hike, we go to tube junction a little before 10am? anyone driving from knoxville that i can carpool with??

      August 5, 2014

  • Puspa

    is anyone planning to carpool tomorrow?

    August 5, 2014

    • ajeet k.

      hey puspa, i just wanted to go on the float and i live in knoxville--where are you coming from? my email is [masked]

      August 5, 2014

  • Kimberly R.

    I'm hoping myself and the Dude can come tonthis, so I've said yes ma'am.

    Brian is there any way to just do the hike. I am supposed to be off next week but I probably will need to get back to the house in the early to mid afternoon on that day

    1 · July 28, 2014

    • Lynn

      Brian may have already sent you a note, but he said that would be fine. If you want to meet us a little early(15 minutes?) we can help shuttle your car to the Y.

      1 · July 29, 2014

    • Roger F.

      Thanks Lynn. Brian did email me, and I will meet you guys 15 minutes early at the Y if I understood his message correctly.

    I have not been able to justify using a vacation day to see Harold in his Daisy Dukes. Someone please get a picture! May I vote in abstentia for Harold as "Best White Something"?

    1 · July 29, 2014

  • Harold R. S.

    This hike gives me a good reason to watch Joe Dirt, again. Lol

    Good opportunity to use a paid personal day at work

    definitely sounds fun, but off to hike in Scotland next day, so will have to miss this one.

    sounds like a hoot, but alas, I have a day job. Hope you all have a great time.
