Martins Dixie Depot?

Last time I went by they were out of business.

I loved the place but it wasn't everyone's cup of tea.

You are correct ... will check when I go bye their... then the campground might be the place to leave a food drop.. if they will take it... but if not .. well its just a couple days more food... was just trying to lighten the load some...

Just go up the gravel FS road a few yards and find a tree 10 yards or so off the trail. Done that a couple times, no problems.
