    11 HOF voters did not vote for Babe Ruth. So I don't care that Jeter wasn't unanimous.

    I'm just glad that I've already walked/backpacked it. The first time was with my husband in July 2014 (we walked over and back) which was right after the very last time that I saw/spoke with Baltimore Jack as he was coming out of the Harpers Ferry…

    Thanks all...I checked out the Hwy 340 bridge (Sandy Hook Bridge) on google maps (street view), it's about a 1/4-mile long and I don't see a shoulder -- I see a fog line and a little bit of pavement outside that line, but that doesn't meet the definition…

    It looks like I'm going to get lucky this spring as the wife is going on a trip for two weeks with her best friend. So I'm going to plan something as I just don't get these opportunities much.
    Where should I hike? I'm thinking maybe I go back to the Grand Canyon and maybe hit Bryce too. I'd like to finish off New Hampshire and start Maine but I think it'll be way too early to go that far north. I guess other options are the BMT, Linville Gorge and ?????

  • 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.
