It is time to start signing up for the LeConte Hiking Trip in Gatlinburg TN. This is a great hiking trip that the whole family can enjoy.
Dates: November 14-16, 2014
We are meeting at the Publix on Woodlawn at 7:30 PM Thursday night to buy the food for the LeConte hiking trip. Everyone going on the trip should come help us shop! If everyone comes, we should be done in an hour.
Departure for the trip is 5:00 PM Friday at the East Cobb Presbyterian Church. We want to have all the cars loaded and be ready to roll by 5:30, so don't be late!
Packing for the trip is easy. Since it's condo camping, you just need an overnight bag and a day pack. You should bring the following items:
- Sleeping bag
- Clothes to sleep in and toiletries
- Day pack (bookbag will work)
- Clothes for the hike (no cotton!)
- Jacket (it will be cold!)
- Good boots
- Extra sock for the hike
- Flashlight (it gets dark earlier now)
- Water bottle
- First aid kit
- Trail snacks
- Clothes for Gatlinburg and drive home
- Money for cheesy knife shop and food-stops on the way up and the way home
You will be carrying your lunch in your day pack, and it will fill up with clothes you take off as you get heated up during the hike. Other items you might like: camera, hiking poles, and playing cards to play at the top.
IMPORTANT: You must have a permission form signed by your parents to buy a knife at the cheesy-knife-shop!
Permission form can be found here:
Print this form and get your parent or guardian to sign it and bring it with you!
