Hey Bill... Got a call from Darren and heard you were in town for a few days. I was the other guy that did Pinch/Glade that day. Can never tell you enough thanks for that run. What a great time that was.
If you want solid Beta regarding Big South... Get in touch with Frenchy. He owns/operates MountainBuzz and can be found in the memberlist. The Big South is his hometown run and he ALWAYS knows what going on with it.
If I am not mistaken the only way you are going to get into it now is to do some beefy hiking, but again he will have the info you are looking for.
Wow, I don't know about solid beta, but I'm pretty certain that Long Draw road will not be open for a few more weeks. Sometime in early July would be my guess. They like to wait until all the side roads and camp sites have completely melted off before opening the gate. Someone will most definetly post a message here as soon as the gate's unlocked. Check back in a few weeks.
