Any of you been to Turtle Island Preserve near Boone?  I had never heard of it but it looks and sounds amazing.  Unfortunately they have been shut down, at least temporarily, by the local government.

I got acquainted with Turtle Island through the show Mountain Men.  Eustice is an American original for sure!  What they are doing to him is what they have done to us all. Try drilling a well in your backyard and see how far you get.  Thanks for sharing this link.

It was one of the better GSMNP hikes I've been on.  Took your advice on Lower Cammerer and the AT up to Mt Cammerer.  Then AT to Low Gap returning to Elkmont.  It was 35 when I left Elkmont in the AM.  But felt like 60 at the Cammerer Lookout!  Superb weather.

Good find, Tom.  I've never been there but I have read the book about Eustice Conway, though.  How was your Big Creek trip?
