FYI: For any newbies that don't know about Wanda of Wanda and Pete, Wanda has thru hiked the AT and other trails a gazillon times! She also has over 10,000 finds. The woman doesn't stop!

Isn't Wanda A HOOT! I'm glad I got to meet her in Gatlinburg. Sounds like you two had a day to remember. Glad I wasn't there.

...is that she left behind - for me to plant - some boxes that - how can I say this? - could probably get me arrested if found on my person during a routine traffic stop.

Ummm, nope! Wish it had been us--really, REALLY do--but it wasn't.

Ah, if only half of your heavily embroidered tale is true, I can be happy today.

MUHAHAHAHA!
*hoping she didn't notice that I moved the "naughty" boxes into the backseat where they are more easily discovered*

*hmm… some of those pesky hiking partners did make it back… *


Well, can't pretend I actually kept up or anything... but didn't FreeBird beat you back to your truck last fall?

Wanda said it was only 4 miles and all downhill and she knew the way.

I started to hike up and up and realized this was not downhill. I also found out later it wasn’t just 4 miles…


Now this story I will share... but not right away. I'll wait until Joan and I are hiking one of the trails in McDowell, and she makes her normal comment about needing to be a mountain goat. Might make her feel better. 8))

Hmmm... nope, don't seem to recall it that way at all. Then again, probably Mountainscorpia and Wanda remember a bit different version of the weekend-- but I posted first so I win! Isn't that how it's supposed to work? ;)

Nope. Posting first just gives them rebuttal opportunities... now they get to "correct" the story.

Especially on this board. 8))

Just because of timing it's not likely, but not impossible either. It would depend on when, where and how much advance warning I got. Knowing up front that I probably wouldn't keep up unless someone let me, I would at least try to have a map and compass with me so I could figure out how to get back.

Trail? We don't need no steenking trail... I'm getting lost on the harder courses now! 8))

I then realized that I had no map and no way back and Wanda was leaving me in the dirt!!

Hey, Knit Wit! Does this mean that Wolf in Sheeps Clothing comes with a soundtrack?

Wanda introduced me to the AT.
GO to BABE, Free bird! Wanda will be there (but she will have done all the boxes then), and you can experience first hand the trail we did. There are 4 boxes we planted there and a box on either end of the trail from others (though one may be missing).

You think banjo music would be appropriate?

Hadn't really thought about it. But now that you mention it... YES!

It even ties in with the rafting at USNWC. 8))

Hmmm... I'm starting to wonder about the real reason Knit Wit invited me to come hiking to do the Deliverance box with her...
