Vee...Yay! Smoky Mountains must be calling lots of us now...heard of many people heading down this month! I'll be there in 10 days myself! =-)

I too will be doing some hiking, some good eats, seeing some great friends, and a bit of local travel as well. Have a great trip! =-)

18 more days for me! Have a great trip, VeeBee.....you, too Deputy! Unfortunately no hiking for me because of my health issues but with brand new camera in hand, I plan on visiting all my favorite places in the park as well as taking a drive on the Foothills Parkway for the first time and hopefully getting some great photos! Also, I'm going to try to find those old cottages in Elkmont that you can drive past (before they are all torn down). Hopefully we'll all have some wonderful weather while we are there!

These reports are hard on the folks who have just returned from the Smokies. We were just there the last week of March and we won't be returning until the end of October.

Was just up there this morning. Headed back tomorrow morning to meet with the HOA liaison for our condo we just bought. Yep. We're officially locals/locus now.

We just got back last week and I'm ready to go back...We have a cabin booked June 24th but I really don't think I can wait that long, I'm hoping to get down for a weekend in May. I wish I could buy a cabin there someday. Love the area.

I hope everyone going down soon has a wonderful trip. happy and safe travels.

You are so lucky, we won't be back in Gatlinburg until late October.

Have a safe & fun trip.
