I know that there are several backpacking sites on the web. However, I just like ATS and find its members to be intelligent and helpful. I live in New
Orleans, but I thoroughly enjoy backpacking. I graduate from nursing school in December and a few friends and I would like to disappear for about 5
days. I've been to Arkansas and would like to give Tennessee a go. I haven't been camping there since I was a kid and my parents took us for a two
week road trip.
We aren't in the mountains all the time, so please don't give me some super strenuous hike. Maybe something with expansive ridge views, water,
you know, things that make you so very glad to get out of the city. We are all experienced and have quality gear. I hear the Big South Fork trails are
nice and there's a 22 mile loop that can be done.
Mind you, we will be driving from New Orleans, so hopefully something in the southern portions?
Thank you for anyone who contributes.
P.S.-Mods, if hiking posts do not coincide with the spirit of ATS, I understand. Just a fan of the site is all.
PPS- reply with your own camping stories and photos, please. It would greatly help us out.
