OMG...I just figured out who this woman is. It's:
Anyone at the Gathering remember that large black
lady that I can best describe as 'a bit unusual?' After
recalling my conversation with her last October, I can
more easily understand this situation. At the time, I
thought she was enthusiastic but didn't have a clue...
There's an article in today's Johnson City newspaper about the hiker who was on Unaka Mountain in the snow Tues. night and called her mother-in-law for help. It presents it in an entirely different way than did the TV interview. The newspaper said that she was in her sleeping bag, still no mention of a tent, and that she awoke about 3:30 or so and couldn't move. The TV interview mentioned a 50 lb pack, which I thought was terribly heavy, but then I realized that she's carrying winter gear. She says that she'll be back in April or May to continue. a'bear
