Tis the season to love the perfect hiking weather in the South. The weather is so nice and consistent that you could spray paint the forecast on a wall for the next few weeks.
Sunny and warm with a chance of thunderstorms at times. Highs in the 70s and lows near 50.
A passel of northbound hikers are fixin to hit Trail Days in Damascus, Virginia, on May 16-18, 2014, but I met one NoBo in late March at the Pine Grove Furnace General Store.
If you're headed to Trail Days -- by car or by foot -- you'll be in good company. Unless you toss a now-forbidden water balloon at a beauty queen, cop, member of the honor guard or scout troop. Try that and you'll be up to your neck in bad company.
Water guns are still allowed -- with the same restrictions on targets.
Keep your eyes on the prize:
