I have made Travel Plans from Florida to Asheville NC Jun 17-24th. I am planning two (2) separate backpack camping hikes – each (1) overnight & each approx. 10 miles or less total roundtrip & minimum ... Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at: ALL PLANNING WOULD HAVE TO BE DIRECT WITH ME AS THIS IS TWO WEEKS OUT & I'M TRAVELLING FROM 800 MILES AWAY. IF SO INTERESTED WE CAN TALK DIRECT AS TO WHEN WHERE & HOW TO MEETUP. E-MAIL ME YOUR NUMBER & WE'LL TALK.

Well, I want to give a big shout out to Markus who I met thru a friend of a friend (Carlos) who met me at the trailhead for a wonderful adventure, great company and decades of experience. This flatlander (me) in the hills of NC was a little out of shape but we had a wonderful out and back day hike in the Shining Rock Wilderness.

Rain clouds teased their way in and about during the day but ample dry skies and sunshine made for a great hike. Only at the end of the day did the light showers begin. All in all saw great mountains and vistas & hope to get back out again.
