    Has 2020 fall trackrock been cancelled. I'm hearing that it might be. Some have already decided not to go due to the virus pandemic. I need to confirm soon so I can cancel my cabin reservations. Hopefully someone will know or can find out for us.

    I'm talking with Scott. But here is my view.

    If you feel like you shouldn't go out and socialize in the age of covid, please feel comfortable staying home and protecting yourself and your family.

    Otherwise, please go ahead and come to Trackrock. I will be there that weekend barring any kind of unlucky sickness setting in. I will not come if I am sick. But I have my cabin rented at the alternate site. And even if they close the Trackrock event I will be there. If you all are still coming, I will bring all necessary equipment to forge and grind knives regardless of whether the event is cancelled. And I miss you all, and I want to hang out and have a great weekend of camaraderie with you. I will be there.

    And I will let you know what Scott thinks as I get it.

    Totaly understand this. BUT, I wish you'd reconsider. Won't be the same without you.

    Are there any good places to day hike around there? Maybe some waterfalls?

    You can hike right up Bald Mountain from Track Rock or quick run back into NC on US 64 to Appalachian Trail or to Nantahala Gorge for white water rafting. I'm not going to be there this time. I do have an on site cabin reserved which I'd be glad to see someone pickup.

    I think there is. And there is the actual Trackrock

    I'll really miss hanging out with you guys this fall. But I have to travel for 17 hours through 7 states to get down there. With the pandemic I just can't do it. I WILL be there in the spring though. I hope you all have a great time! This was a tough decision for us but I feel its the right one.

    Any updates? I so need a break and change of scenery that I’m coming even if I have to sit at Misty Mountain Cabins by myself and just sit there by myself!

    I'll be there if work allows it. I've got to get away for a few days.

    Yes - still on with some slightly different setup. Scott Garrison has done some changes to help with the social distancing/covid stuff. More details on the Georgia Guild site on fB. Sadly I will not be attending this fall (first ever that I will miss). Things have come up that make it necessary for me to be elsewhere. Really hate to miss seeing all you guys there and all the fun and food. Be safe and have an excellent time. Try not to give Scotty to hard a time.

    It's a hard miss for me as well. Got something going on that can't be shifted. If it goes as planned it will be worth it.
