Me and a couple buddies are going back-country camping this weekend above Elkmont. We are planning on starting our hike around 1 or 2 on Friday (in the rain..) and camping until Sunday. Its all our first time fishing the smokies.. We are getting pretty pumped! Does anybody have any last minute advice to give us?? We are all first timers to the Smokies and really our main goal is to not get eaten by bears..

Thanks,
Ryan
