I didn't even think about that! Haha.Don't jinx it!!!!!!
If you are still in Atlanta on Saturday I am doing 7.5 miles in the morning probably around 7:15 am (i am a little slower than you though). Tomorrow I am swimming.Just cruised today. Off tomorrow, wifey and I are going to Atlanta tonight for the Braves playoff game tomorrow.
Unfortunately, we have to head back after the game, because saturday morning we have to drive to raleigh, nc for my son's soccer games.If you are still in Atlanta on Saturday I am doing 7.5 miles in the morning probably around 7:15 am (i am a little slower than you though). Tomorrow I am swimming.
Have a great time! You are hitting closer to peak season than we did for colors, the trees were just starting to change while we were there. (Two years ago we hit peak perfectly, but it stayed warm too long this year).I am glad you had a great time hiking in GSMNP. I am so looking forward to it. We are leaving on saturday after i get my hard run in. Then I will hike about 8 days. We are planning 100 miles of total hiking. The days i dont hike i am going to try and run. I know Dopeybadger will want me to stick to plan but i am afraid it will be hard. I am doing some of the hikes you did.
We really only ate out once (other than at dollywood, which I assume you aren't doing). It was a dive bar and grill called Bec's that was the only thing close to the cabin. It had 4 things on the menu (burgers, wings, reuben, and prime rib sandwich), and they only served beer at the bar. And they were out of wings that night. But the burgers were huge and fantastic, the fries were handcut and also great, and the beer was cheap and cold. (And the owners were soo nice, even to the point of making homemade honey mustard sauce for my kids for their fries). It is located to the east of Gatlinburg so if that's where your cabin is at, and looking for something simple, I recommend it.Fantastic. I was worried we would be too late but i was waiting to go after we had the Atlanta 10 miler dismeet. I got lucky because of the heat. Should be perfect. Any recommendations on restaurants?
