    I have always felt Angel Hernandez was a terrible umpire, especially calling balls and strikes. Now I usually notice it more when it is against a team I want to win, here is a great example of how bad he is (when my team benefits from his ineptitude). …

    Orienteering day at Tyler State Park. One of my favorite places. I didn't start my track until after the first control. 3.4 miles, 423 feet elevation gain, 1 hour 29 minutes tracked but actual time on course was 1:32:32. I got second in class and 6th…

    I've seen videos of Race Across America before. It's amazing what the participants put themselves through. I guess it's like what people do to attempt a FKT on any of the long trails.

  • 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.
