Greetings valley dwellers! Turnip here with a little back story on our friend, and crew member of the week, Buttermilk! Buttermilk hails from Friendsville, TN and loves pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain. He is a chef by trade, and a loose canon cop on the edge, who doesn't play by the rules. All jokes aside, he is a wonderful person and we are lucky to have him up here. He joined us two months ago and will be here until September 1st. He has big plans for the future! He will be leaving us to pursue his dream of opening a non profit restaurant. We're sad to see him go, but we will always support his dreams. Once crew, always crew. Now, the weather! The skies opened up and the thunder clattered last night. It rained all night, 1.1 inches! The lightening was spectacular! The forecast is calling for more storms, again, this week so gear up before you head up. The current temperature is 61 and the low last night was 53. Happy hiking and much love, Turnip.
