Today the plan is, after we finish breakfast, we are going to get our photos taken using original photography equipment back from the civil war era. We will be dressed according to the period. After that, we will grab lunch to go and head down via Skyline Drive thru the mountains. Due to the weather in Charleston, SC we are no longer heading that way. We will be making our way to Knoxville, TN. Or as close as we can. Today is mostly going to be a driving ...

The Gettysburg Loop
The original plan was to start following the Appalachian Trail south--occasionally taking side trips to visit towns along the way. However, just accross the ridge, some 15 miles away is the city of Gettysburg where perhaps the most important battle of the Civil War was fought--a watershed moment ...
