Default 1971 Hiker's Guide

Thanks again for the suggestions. I dug out my old 1971 edition of "Hiker's Guide to the Smokies". I wonder how it matches up with the conditions today. I notice there are more names of camp sites than numbers. Also, it mentions trials that (at the time) were not maintained, but from what I can gather now, are well maintained today. Interesting bit of history. Back then my hiking was restricted to trails leading up to the AP and on the AP. Sure wish I had been more focused on these lower trails along the streams back then, when I could do a thirty mile two day trip at the drop of a hat. As they say, youth is wasted on the young!

I'll let ya'll know how things work out. I can't wait to get back up there. Byron, be ready to unnload some flies on me!
