from Jay Thomas:

We are planning a trip this weekend, the beginning of the journey from one end of the Commonweath to the other.  We have the gear, the transportation, and the will.  All we lack is the weather.  The forecast is cold, mid forties for highs, upper twenties for nightime lows.  Also saturday carries a thirty percent chance of rain.  Cold I think that I can handle, but I don’t want to get wet.  We will watch the weather and make a determination on Wednesday whether or not to postpone.  I would like to start at the beginning of the trail in Tennessee at the Picket State Park.

Google says that it’s little over five hours drive to Picket State Park.  We could try that or we could try something closer and a little more familiar to us, like the Red River Gorge section or the Rockcastle River section.  I ordered a good guide book that should give us a better idea of the sections.  I’m down with any.
