ME- 48 yr old male, live in South Florida, brand new to forum, signed up 5 minutes ago, working on uploading photos.
New to the the site as well. I'm looking for partners for the GSMNP as well. Unfortunately your dates won't work for me but maybe something at a later time. I'm looking at something in later April or early May. I'm taking the family up to camp at Elkmont in June as well. Good luck to you.
Matt, you may want to post this up on White Blaze as well. It's an AT forum but there are many sub-forums for different trails and areas such as GSMNP. There is a "Meet-up" sub forum as well for finding partners.
