Yup, it’s another queer trip!!
This time: overnight backpacking to McAfee’s Knob during fall break
Here’s the plan:
Meet at echols at noon on Monday
3 hr drive (I know,,, yikes. But its worth it I promise)
Hike in 2 miles to Catawba Shelter
Hang out, dinner, various shenanigans, sleep
Tuesday [times variable, idk y’all] Wake up at the crack of nothing
Hike 2 more miles, catch sunrise at McAfee Knob [it’s absolutely gorgeous, see photo of last time I went] Hang out, eat breakfast on Knob
Hike 4 miles back to cars
3 hr car back to grounds

To Pack:
Clothing– whatever you need for an overnight. Pack clothes you can hike in, pack layers. It might be chilly.
Rain gear
Fleece and/or puffy jacket
Good hiking shoes & extra socks
At least 2L water capacity
Meals– lunch for or before car on Mon, one dinner, one breakfast, one lunch, snacks
Whatever u might need to cook your food
Tent (u can also just sleep in the shelter but there’s no guarantee there won’t be random people there/that it won’t be full. I recommend bringing a tent. I’ll prob make a group text or email sometime before so that if people want to share a tent they can sort that out)
Sleeping bag & sleeping pad
Any toiletries you might need
Backpacking Backpack
I’ll bring:
Water filter
First Aid

**Drivers get priority off the waitlist, come w/ a full tank, you can get gas reimbursed
***This is an affinity trip, don’t sign up if ur not queer or trans please (that being said, if you’re interested but don’t want to publicly sign up, text me!)
Lmk if you have any questions or anything! I’m very excited!
