You not a Spring chicken but you're not old either, and if you need to you can always take your lawn chair for breaks
And it's only 2 klicks to prime Brown habitat on LR if you hike into Metcalf
Think our trip this weekend was only 4 klicks
At long last a retort from our Captain Jack Sparrow of the Smokys and his gang of rogue misfits!
Sir, I will keep my cigar, lawn chair and Maker's Mark and leave the rappelling of rock and boulder to capture the elusive brook you so relish to you and your troop of malcontents. I am built for comfort not speed and would like to spend my remaining years with all 10 toes and limbs. We however, do enjoy your adventures and antics of near drownings, broken rods, and old mountain men who's land you trapse across and find great comfort in the knowledge of yes I am crazy but you should see this guy! Be safe, stay dry, I'll wait for the gates to reopen and drive to my Shangri-La's!
