Sorry for the late response--I've been on vacation.
>Where do you like to hike in the Smokies?
This year it is going to be a trip out of Cades Cove to the AT, then down to
Fontana Lake and looping back up to the AT. Last year we did a loop off
Clingmans Dome into the North Carolina side. The year before, we headed out
of Tremont, along the AT and back. Before that it was a loop out of Cades
Cove up to Gregory Bald and down by Abrams Falls. I've also done some
kayaking in Fontana Lake.
> After staying dry, I guess my next concern will be staying warm.
In late October, all I've needed was my closed cell mattress in my double
bottom hammock and my down blanket.
