Im starting at cades cove and going up to the AT and down eagle creek. Then I will be doing the lakeshore trail and then back up over to the AT to get picked up at elkmont. should take about 6 days. who wants to come? would i be safe by myself in that area where there are not a lot of hikers?

lakeshore trail is great and the lake is high. just got back and posted a trip report here. you will be fine on LST. if you are starting at the tunnel, not many people at all, but once you get past proctor and site 86 you will start to see more people and some boaters. Only dangers we saw were some big rattlers sunning themselves on the switchbacks but they gave us very fair warning.
