    Quote from TheREALdakotaJOE: “don'tcha know, i have a habit of turning up at the most random of moments. I have been a little bit detained for, oh, about 7 years. Miss the woods. Yet still keeping the dream alive. ” Any plans to get back out on the trail?

    DJ, Hope you used that time to figure out a better path. Are you gonna be able to leave the state this year? Or will a Triple Crown have to wait? Either way, hope you embrace the healing power of nature and surround yourself with positive people.

  • 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.
