    I saw an article by someone who wrote a computer program that would write essays using random words arranged in a way that resembled real essays. The result sounded legit, but as you read it, you realized it didn't actually say anything. The sad part was…

    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.

  • 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.
