If you live in that area, I'd be interested in any info you have.

In case you're wondering, we're in our 50's. I've been retired a few years, wife can retire, but hasn't and since I'm a backpacker, I get the cabin fever in the winter.


So wait you are divorcing your wife for backpacking?

Sometimes you just have to use explosives when fishing. Didn't figure I'd get much out of the Carolina HTFs.


Fine, we're definitely not helping your ass now.

The trick in life is to marry someone who has the same interests as you do. Than you can take along your combination backpacking buddy and bed warmer.

I don't know man. You got me scratching my head. When you drop down out of Saluda gap, out of the Blue Ridge Mtn into the flats, that's SC. Hot as hell in the summer. You sure you mean SC?

Sure, I'm sure. Along The Foothills Trail (11)


Ok, got you now. I was looking too far northeast. I have never explored that SC part (Sumter National Forest?) Further southwest runs off my topo map. Looks interesting.

Whatever floats your boat. I don't really get lost all that much. Been doing that sort of thing for a loooong time. I'm familiar with the area.

In that area if there are even any deals to be had you're going to have to spend some time with boots on the ground looking. You're going to have to get away from the lake as well. You could maybe find a deal in Rosman or on Hwy. 11 east and west of the lake. Other than that you're talking vacation rentals, I don't think you'll find what you consider a deal on a vacation rental. Good luck with your search.
Link Posted: 11/22/2011 6:36:50 AM EDT
Check the local craigslist there for deal on camper.
Buy camper upon arrival and park in wilderness area.
List camper as free with directions to it when leaving and keep propane tank.
Drive home.

Probably much cheaper than renting a cabin for a month



Speed
