My apologies if you must watch an ad to begin with, but then again, you may need a roofer. :smile:

I couldn't get any sound! Checked all settings- nothing!

John, I'd like to help, but couldn't come up with any tips from the WBIR web site.

Sorry to spill the plot, but the program is an account of Andy Sherman and Paul O'Neil in the winter of 1899 leaving a Tellico River logging camp that was being shutdown and heading home to Robbinsville. The pair became lost in a blizzard and a hunter found their dead bodies several months later near the Summit of Huckleberry Knob (e. 5560ft) in the Unicoi Mountains, surrounded by several jugs of whiskey.

JoeFred, the story of how Jeffrey **** (in the Citico Wilderness) got its name is also a chilling and sad account. It also has many different versions.

Thanks, Grannyknot. Yep. This **** is one to fear also. Even today the best of GPS devices and a Gerber Bear Grylls Parang are no match for this true wilderness were one to be foolish enough to stray from the trails. Poor, poor Jeffrey.

Been there done that and got the sticker badge. LOL!! I'll just tell you that when you follow a pack of hounds into that place you WILL sleep on YOUR side of the bed that night. Meaning NO hanky panky.

I got sound. Certainly a tragic story. Alcohol dilates the blood vessels, speeding up the loss of body heat.
"itch" should be "etch."
