Yeah there is some big movement and outrage on this. Just this week more than 500 people signed a petition against it at the Little River Trading Company in Townsend. The petition made WBIR news tonight lots of folks talking about it. I think the park kinda thought backpackers wouldn't fight much they are a small and passive group after all who like to get away from it all you know. Heath Shuler and other reps are getting involved I have heard but the fight isn't over by a long shot. Hopefully at the very least folks who can't come to the meeting will let the park know what you think about issue by emailing comments to the park about the proposal to charge fees for backcountry camping at: grsmcomments@nps.gov
