Ruby Tuesday~ April 10, 2012- (About Tina's backpacking trip)


My daughter Tina ~the adventurer~ has an  approx 50 mile backpacking hike in the Smokey Mountains,coming up April 28th.

 She set up her camping tent to show us this weekend, in our back yard.

The backpack will be over 40 lbs-

These are her cool red boots!  :)

 Tina is very excited about this event!

The only thing that would make it more exciting for her is if her daughter, Alli, could be going with her; but Alli can't go because of her college  obligations.
Tina will drive to Tn  where the group will meetup and be taken to the point where they will begin the hiking trip the next day.

 They will sleep in small tents (which they carry) 3 (or maybe it's 4) nights and will sleep one night in a rustic cabin! (with no electricity) They will hike  almost 50 miles over this time period of 5 days!!

Does this sound like fun? :) She thinks so...

I'd be remembering all those scary movies I've seen about hikers and campers around a campfire at night...and bears and mountain lions...and worse....that guy in the hockey mask!


Read all about it here!

This is the map of the hike-with each day marked in a different color.

I have been down Bryson City way several times in years past to visit in laws. I'm sure she will have a great experience. Let us know how it went!
