It's Official

"It's a Major Award!"

I received my certificate in the mail on Saturday from the Great Smoky Mountains 900 Miler Club. I am Member No. 254 of completers of the Smokies 900 Challenge, having hiked every currently maintained trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Do I get extra points for also hiking that Ollie Cove Trail?
Of course, you don't have to join the Smokies 900 Club to claim being a 900-miler, but by paying your $15 you get to show all your friends that your name is on the website membership list, plus you get all this other great stuff.

They actually sent me two certificates, one with just my name and one with my name plus "Smoky Scout" as I requested.

Best of all, I got this great patch. In Girl Scouts we love our patches!

Congratulations Smoky Scout, wear your patch proudly! The list is even smaller of those that completed this feat in one year AND had an overnight stay at the Hazel Creek Hilton. :o)

I think that list is pretty small. How about if you join me?

I especially love the fact that you got one with Smoky Scout on it. One you show to your family. The other you show to your pals. Congratulations again!
