I've played for several years, and am in town for a couple of weeks. I mostly play fingerstyle nowadays (not Scruggs style, but a derivative). If you want to play bluegrass stuff, learn your rolls, and it all comes from that (as you may already know). If you want to learn clawhammer, this is a good book (

what kind of banjo do you have?

addl banjo resources:

I'll be pretty busy for the rest of the time I'm here but I'd be interested in jamming a bit if you're up for it. Alll you have to know is a few chords (G, C, D) and we can play Cripple Creek and do some noodley jamming as well.

Shared on the original thread, but thought people in K-town might like the same info:

If you're coming in March, the weather can be very volatile. East TN itself will be 70 one day and in the 30s and snowing the next. (We were this week.) Your main concern will be spring storms on that front.

So, here are some relevant links. Let us know where you are looking to go & when. I'm sure we can help you out.

National Park Service site on the campsites

Another look at the campgrounds and back country sites

Clickable Trail Map (printed in 1997, anyone who's been to the park has seen this map.) It still doesn't beat the little brown book.

Trail listing (site is not working correctly)

Download maps from the NPS. Includes Trail, park, and campground maps.

And the NPS GSMNP Hiking page. Has some important information, including how to find out road and facilities closings.

Ijams and the Greenways that folks have already mentioned are great. There are also the Knox County Greenways. Five Star Trails: Knoxville is a really good book for people who want maps to walk around with. I found it very useful in just finding out about trails I didn't know about already.

There’s a great book that has a lot of good routes in the Knoxville area. I highly recommend it. Bicycling Routes by Elle Colquitt

Cades Cove is too busy for me and House Mountain is too. I would recommend GSMNP for sure - if you live here you should get this book - this lady hikes the trails all the time and has broke all the trails into day hikes. If you start at the beginning of the book and just go through it you'll have hiked every inch of the trails. It is awesome. Every trail holds something different and unique so I can't recommend just one - I love them all.

If you aren't wanting to hike I would say go to Dollywood if you haven't been - it's awesome.

Not to sound too nerdy about it, but this is interesting when put into the historical context of early American frontier migration patterns. Many Tennessean families started as Virginians then moved west (often to Texas). However, there were several competing cultures migrating at the time. Of relevance here, the southern planter elite rubbed up on and competed with the borderlander/Appalachians. You can almost draw a line straight west from Charleston South Carolina to the Mississippi river and have an approximate border between these groups. Without going into more detail, I think we can safely rely on caricatures of the rich southern gentleman in formal attire versus the back-country plain-speaking fella in deer skins. They weren't fond of each other.

Anyway, the map's mention of Virginia as "Family" and Texas as "My First Job" are exactly what you'd expect given Eastern Tennessee's place in the history. Then Kentucky is implied to be similar to Tennessee (just not as good), which is also entirely consistent. I suspect some of the modern antagonism between TN and AL is not 100% because of football. Perhaps old cultural tensions and the fact that AL was a battleground in this regard are deeper factors. Similar cultural contrasts can be seen between, say, Houston and Dallas--or so I've heard.


Apologies for rambling. If anyone wants to learn more, here ya go:

You can buy inflatable kayaks for relatively cheap. Here's one on Amazon for $87.80 and ships for free if you have a Prime account. I think I saw some Kayaks in Target or Wal-mart but I'm not sure how much they were. They may have cheaper inflatable ones also.

Check all sporting good stores. There's a new one near Cedar Bluff called Acadamy Sports + Outdoors.

Everyone needs some diatomaceous earth in their lives. Here's a huge 10 lbs bag $22. Spread it all over everywhere bugs can enter your home and all around the foundation. It's bug kryptonite and completely safe for all vertebrates.

Well then, I for one have always thought bumper stickers are tacky. However, I just ordered a Darwin fish. Considering I live in a county that wont allow beer sales on Sunday, I will bet it will offend someone.

I doubt they would know about the flying spaghetti monster. :(
Here have a link for lovely bumper stickers!

There's a good book about this called The Heat of a Red Summer.

The "red summer" was a nation-wide flare-up of race riots in 1919. Severe racial unrest continued throughout 1920 and 1921.

Our Southern Highlanders by Horace Kephart is fascinating. Kephart (after whom Mount Kephart in the Park is named) moved around a bit but he was from up north. After a personal crisis, he moved to Bryson City, started exploring the Smoky Mountains and hanging out with the locals and writing about what he saw. He was also a mover & shaker in the founding of the Park.

Our Southern Highlanders is in the public domain, so it's free on Kindle or from the Gutenberg Project.
