I can tell you that regardless of the *legality* of carts on Eagle or Forney-- the trail (especially on Forney) and the creek crossings (especially on Eagle) will probably make you abandon any carts...

I'll either be at Eagle or Forney next weekend; and if we go to Eagle, I'll keep my eyes peeled for yours as well as my inexpensive Timex I lost at the mouth of Pinnacle Creek. How was the fishing?...

Bummer dp! Hopefully some rest and some Tagamet will have you back in fishing form.

I'm certainly interested in hearing a bit more about how Raven and/or Noland is fishing. Do you like upstream...

Yeah, I kind of thought that Hazel would be pretty crowded this time of year. On my one trip to Forney, the fishing was pretty slow; but it was cold and even dumped some snow on us-- so I was...

I concur with working from a list and being weight conscious.

I keep a master list which I create a copy of before each trip and whittle down to just the items for that specific trip. Weather,...

re: topo maps of the smokies

I use a Trails Illustrated topo map of the Smokies that has a 2007 revision date. The map seemed accurate enough for that area when I was there in March 2009. Are there newer maps? Has anything...

Spotlight-- I didn't weigh my pack before I went; but it was definitely the lightest pack I've carried on a trip in a while. I took my solo tent and an ultralight down sleeping bag. And on the way...

Rog 1-- don't worry, I have no plans of giving up on anything or any specific area. The thing that is funny (or peculiar) is that the crossing is nothing that would register on any normal trip. (We...

Hi Jim-- thanks for the reply.

The main reason I was looking at a destination outside of the park is that my springer spaniel is my number one hiking partner. I promised her I wouldn't take two...

Regarding using the EHC as a dropper,...
