    I was thinking about a gathering in the smokies. Maybe visit cades cove, grill out and go visit Smokey Mountain Knife Works and chat knives and such ... Maybe in the spring before it gets too hot

    Would anyone be interested?

    As long as it doesn't conflict with my kids spring break I am game for sure. I would love to meet some fellow forum members.

    I live in Knoxville. I'd love to meet up. I love the smokies. I'd love to learn what you guys carry. Always on the lookout for new things. My first love is firearms though, and I know many here don't feel the same so if that conflicts with your views then I'll stay at home as to not offend anyone ;)

    I've got an itch for firearms myself. Though I don't own a whole lot! Firearms are a part of my EDC. Anyone is welcome

    I was living in White Pine and working for Dish Network in Knoxville, and would pass the Sevierville exit every day. There were many times I must have blacked out or something, because I would always end up at Knife Works or Bass Pro Shop.....

    I moved back to the woods of northern Michigan last year, and I sure wish there was a Knife Works here.

    I'm all the way over here in Memphis, but it sounds like fun. I'm from Cincinnati and used go down to Norris Lake and then all the way through the Park to N.C.

    This is turning out better than I thought ... Glad there is some interest in this!

    Definitely got some blades on my list to purchase at SMKW -- And you cant really beat a drive through Cades Cove (I always am on the lookout for bears!)

    Funny thing that, I'm from Cincinnati originally also, lived in Memphis for ~4 years, then moved to Nashville 12 years ago, where I still live. Small world eh?

    to keep on topic, I'd be interested in a gathering, the smokies work fine for me!

    I'm interested in a meet-up, depending on the when and where. I've got a carry permit but no firearm so I'm game to listen and learn about that. It's always fun to see what others have. And the SMKW is always a good time.
