    Visiting Maggie Valley, NC

    Going to be visiting Maggie Valley, NC for a few days and am sure to get my exercise locking up the pistols every time we go onto the Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smokey Mountains National Forest, Cherokee, Etc.

    Last trip was to Boston.

    Will someone PPPLLLLEEEEAAAASSSSEEEEEEE tell me how to convince my wife to visit places that are more CCW friendly?

    All kidding aside I am really looking forward to the mountains.

    You may want to check a map but when my wife and I went up to Cherokee and
    Gaitlinburg, I purposefully went hwy 19 (through Maggie Valley) because it isn't part of the Smokey Mountain NP; or so I thought.

    Hey! See if GHOST TOWN IN THE SKY is still operational? I went there a couple of times as a kid and they had one of those swing rides that had half it's arc over about a 500 foot cliff! Awesome.

    BTW, your ccw permit is good inside the Great Smokey Mountains National Park and most everywhere else you mentioned I think. Believe it or not Obama signed the bill in which those allowances were a "rider." When I go to NC I carry durn near everywhere EXCEPT into a movie theater!

    Cool

    I could be wrong, and correct me if I am, but I think the bill that Obama signed which included the National Park carry provision, doesn't go into effect till Feb 2010.

    I will be coming in from the East so no worry about hitting the park on the way there and a quick google search shows hdawson is correct. Not allowed until Feb 2010.

    No, I think it merely restored a right given by GW Bush prior and was in effect from the moment of signature. But somebody should check. I could be wrong and I ain't traveling!

    You are wrong. It's not effective until Feb 2010.

    Hi ExSoldier,

    I was recently in the Manassas National Battlefield Park and they have a notice posted in the Visitor Center warning us not to carry until the specific date the new law goes into effect in Feb 2010.

    Sorry to bring bad news...
    The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good.

    You should be good to go in Cherokee. Someone from another board called the Police Chief and he gave them the OK. They can make up some of their own laws since they are a separate "Nation" so to speak. Call him if you need to verify.

    If you are in Waynesville around lunch, try The Patio. It's off main, around the corner from the kitchen store. Butts on the Creek in Maggie has some good BBQ. Head out to Cataloochee for the elk. Try getting there around in the evening, before dark. I hear the rut is starting.

    Thanks for the heads up & I will call him today. Last time I saw Elk was in Banff, AB in the Canadian Rockies and would love to see some again.

    I did call the Police on the reservation and they said they do recognize NC CCW permits.
