    Guess it takes a certain personality to be a MLB umpire. 11th inning of still tie game with two on and two out Gary Sanchez swings and misses a 1-2 pitch by about a foot and ump calls it a foul ball. AJ Hinch tries to encourage him to get some help…

    2 of our crew see all my pics on the Face Vooge, they are the 2 oldest, they are the other climbers. They both walked the Long Path. They understand I need to walk. I’ve had so far a great year of hiking. I plan to show up the last 2 sessions in Nov/ Dec

  • Winter Linville Gorge

    On February 27th, 28th and 29th I did a two night out and back trip from Wolf Pit Road trail-head to Table Rock mountain and back. In typical cafe fashion I planned this trip while driving 80 mph east on I-40 heading back from the Smokies. I stopped at a McDonald's to borrow some free Wifi to get a picture of a the trails and away I went. Going up Wolf Pit road in my 2002 Honda Accord was risky with the amount of ice and snow on the road. The final hill going down to the…
  • Great Smoky Mountain National Park

    On February 25th and 26th I did a nice loop in the Smokies from Big Creek Ranger Station parking lot to Deep Gap along the AT south of Mt. Cammerer fire tower. There was about 6 to 8 inches of snow while going up. I stealth camped due to the amount of snow coming in and the next day went down the Big Creek trail. Overnight there was another 6 to 8 inches of snow and freezing fog.
