Thanks for plugging Friends of the Smokies. One of these days you might even come down and hike with me.

I "banked" all my hiking time for the year for my Glacier trip (spent more than 5 weeks out there). But I really want to get back to the Smokies ASAP. I'll give you a heads-up on my next visit - it might be this winter....
