    Good morning all,

    Not my story; just reporting on it. It was minor but potential to es calculate.

    Per ... Some flash floods stranded some hikers and rescue teams successful.

    Area is beautiful territory grid north of Kingsport, Tenn / Bristol, Virginia.

    Some lessons / tips after reading article;

    - Each group of hikers needs a list of group members with some specifics eg car type, license plate number arrived in.

    - mild hypothermia is preventable if understood and prepared for.

    Thank you Tiffany for real good pictures of beautiful land !

    I'm glad the story had a happy ending. It does look like a beautiful area, but I have to think that water would be freezing cold, especially this time of year. I can't imagine swimming in it.
