    Looks like Kathy and I won't be making MLK 2019 :( That's because we recently booked a 5 day dogsled camping trip, in northern MN, for that weekend. :) We'll miss our friends here but we'll be enjoying the cold just like you. The first time we did this…

    I can't stand plastic water bottles. It blows my mind that people are paying for what is pretty much tap water in a plastic bottle. I use an insulated stainless steel bottle that I fill with tap water and from drinking fountains. It goes everywhere with…

  • 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.
