    Sounds like you folks made the right call. Meanwhile Kathy and I were out in northern Minnesota doing a dogsled camping trip. It was clear blue skies and night time low temperatures of -17, -37 and, -38. The dog sledding part was a blast but my fingers…

    looks that way. it's a shame when someone gets awards posthumously and isn't around to enjoy their moment in the spotlight.

    Right now Kathy and I are planning to hike the 188 miles of the AT in Maine from route 27 at Stratton to the northern terminus. We'd also like to get to NY's Catskill mountains a couple of times this year. But nothing is set in stone at this point.

  • 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.
