    Finally got a Monday/Tuesday where it wasn't below freezing or pouring down rain. After my class in Ft Smith I drove to Mt Magazine State Park. Got there after 10pm, and rain was just misting, but the fog was unbelievable. I drove around the loop…

    Ah, the 'New Tappen Zee.' The elites can try to build monuments to themselves, but at least we still have the option to ignore them.

    On a more positive note. Glad to have Dusty Baker. Rember him coming up with the Braves, and then going to the Dodgers in the Jimmy Winn (Toy Cannon) deal. Was part of some great Dodger teams. mlb.com/news/dusty-baker-adam-…B8sd9&bt_ts=1582547958146

    Quote from IMScotty: “This bus is a vortex of unhappy outcomes... yahoo.com/news/italian-hikers-…a-visiting-230459201.html ” That is sad. So many other adventures they could have put their effort into with better results.

  • 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.
