We hiked nearly three miles at Panther Creek State Park. Then we drove over to Gatlinburg and hiked the Gatlinburg Trail from the Sugarlands Parking lot into town, a two mile trail, plus an additional mile in the city.
We went shopping at NOC Outfitter in Gatlinburg and then ended up at BassPro in Kodak/Sevierville.
My pack worked great.
I found a pair of La Sportiva Mountain Running "Wildcat" hiking shoes at NOC. Then I found a Black Diamond Spot headlamp on sale.
Now to 'lighten' the rest of my load. With a trip to REI tomorrow and more hiking.

I bought Sea to Summit silnylon waterproof stuff sacks, a long sleeve shirt, a short sleeve shirt and a pair of 'toe socks' ... and tried on shoes. My wide feet and high arches make shoe buying difficult.
I'm afraid I'll end up going to my podiatrist to get fitted for the first pair of shoes that actually fit. Hopefully I can find the additional pairs I'm sure to need online.
I'll be doing some 'pre-hike' hikes this week with a full pack. Hope the weather holds out.
After the hike, I'll report on how everything went.

Down East Magazine wrote an article about Steve in 2001. His SunJournal [Maine] Obituary is here.
Rest In Peace, Steve Longley, thank your for your service to the Appalachian Trail community.
Hiking shoes and Trail runners are the usual footwear for hikers today. Most hikers are 'lightweight' [under 35 pounds] or 'ultralightweight' [under 20 pounds] including food and water. Both of these style hikers can wear low hiking shoes or trail runners. One advantage is that should a hiker make a missed step, it's easy to catch one's balance with a shoe that pivots at the ankle than with one that forces the leg to follow through with the missed step. Most Trail runners don't have very thick cushioning. Many hikers use Superfeet to add stiffness to Hiking shoes and Trail runners.
Another choice today, especially in the summer time, is sandals. Some have thick vibram soles and good arch support.
And finally, there are Vibram's Five Fingers. Some have a 'thick' hiking tread. I'm taking my KSO's as camp and water shoes.
Sock choices are off the charts. Most Thru Hikers find a brand or style and stick with them for years. Finding the 'right' sock can take years and many attempts, however. I like the REI Merino Wool Mini Crew Light Hiking Socks but I also have tried the Injinji toe socks. The Injinji make good liner socks and work well with Sandals. REI makes a good silk liner sock, too.
