    Every night this week my wife has been coming home with shopping bags full of Christmas presents. She cannot wait to excitedly tell me how much money she has been saving. If she keeps saving money like this we are heading to the Poor House :(

    Quote from Bo Peep: “How In the hell have these essay writers, or whatever they are, targeted the Cafe? ” must be all the big words, and run on sentences and exceptional grammar we use here...I wish they’d quit targeting me. :D I feel violated.

    Picked this up at my local PA State Store. $24.99 for a gift box that included two etched glasses. i-VvpdMVL-M.jpg Surprisingly smooth for a ~$20 bourbon. Enjoyed the first taste on the rocks and had a few stiff mixes with Coke Zero last night.

  • 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.
