The week of May 7, 2007, I took my annual trip to Tennessee. I played my dream 24-hour paintball game, and it was great. And then I spent the weekend hiking and visiting friends and family. I hiked in the Bald River Wilderness, as well as on the AT near Roan Mountain, a short trail near South Holston Dam, and at Ozone Falls. I really had a great trip home, and it reminded me just how homesick I could get.
