For those of you not on Facebook, here is what Turtle posted:
Green Giant's Welcome Home Party will be on Saturday, October 25th in Hot Springs, NC so we can all say that we've walked part of the AT (it runs through the town). I'm trying to figure out what sort of shindig this will be, so this is where I need your help...
If you are planning on coming, please reply below or message me. Please also include how many folks will be with you, and whether you'll just stop by for a while or if you plan to make a weekend out of it. The leaves will probably be past peak, but there are a lot of outdoor activities nearby, and there are many options for lodging from camping to hostels to B&Bs.
Your replies will determine whether this is a small informal gathering at the local tavern, or whether we need something with more space for the weekend, so let me know your thoughts.
