A hike report from bushcraftusa website

Post by sudden » Sun Mar 20, 2011 11:40 am

I have a friend with the last name Kephart so this article caught my eye.

Thanks for posting the link. that place looks a lot different without 2 ft of snow. I looked for that millstone and couldnt find it anywhere in January. Great campsites..
I was hoping to see a fish pic as I went down the list.

I agree, some fish would have been nice :). Those streams are just begging for a fisherman to come along.

From his description of the location I doubt it would be easy to find in winter or summer for that matter (once the vegetation fills in).

Found this information describing its location.

"GPS Coordinates 35° 31.197′ N, 83° 25.182′.

On the Historical Marker Database website, W. Frank March of Sevierville, TN added the following assistance — “The memorial is located approximately 322′ SW (bearing 220 degrees) from the Martins Gap Trail sign. From the trail sign, go back down the trail toward Deep Creek campground approximately 150′, then go off the trail at an angle, to the right. The marker is below the trail, on the right.”"

My fish pictures will probably come from my trip to Arkansas where the water is clean and the crappie are large. I just got back from a trip to my folks house where my dad repaired(replaced) three ferrules on two UglyStiks I picked up at a church rummage sale. :D :DP:

Fish Fry was great. Five guys, lots of Crappie fillets, hush puppies, beer, cigars, and worked on my motorcycle. I should have took pics :oops: My one friend brought his new DIY fire piston that worked very well. I will try to duplicate his effort and post a report if successful. ;) The crappie were a big hit as I breaded them with Andy's "red" fish meal. It has a nice bite to it but not like the Andy's "cajun" fish meal does. I like both but the "red" is awesome!
