166 Saturated In The Smokies

On this episode we recap our Smoky Mountain Backpacking trip on Jakes Creek Trail. The challenges, rewards, and the wet reality spent in the backcountry. We share what’s it like setting up and tearing down camp in a torrential rain storm.

What we talk about:

Smokies don’t play

Don’t go chasing waterfalls, but when you do…Crabwalk

Historical Smokies never disappointing

Clothes get wet, pack them out and add the pounds

Ariane can’t predict the weather.
