Hi! Although I'm actually from NC, I LOVE the mountains that stretch along the border of NC and TN. Was hoping to get back into backpacking (love it) and stumbled upon your group and an upcoming trip to one of my favorite hiking destinations! :-)
Nashville BP folk are truly some of the nicest and zaniest hikers/backpackers I've ever met! Thanks to Deena's warm welcome via email, I decided to sign up for the Roan Mtn trip... and am so thankful to have shared a wonderful weekend with you all journeying along a beautiful stretch of the AT. Would be great to attend other BP events "along the border" (Smokies) or venture a little further into TN to enjoy some of your favorite stomping grounds. :-) Thanks once again for such a hearty welcome and a great time together.
