    Right now Maine still has a two week 'quarantine' for new arrivals to their state. The governor is getting a lot of push-back on that right now. Massachusetts and New Hampshire have signboards at the borders requesting that visitors quarantine for two…

    Quote from Astro: “Checked both MATC and Whiteblaze, and it appearrs the Kennebec River Ferry started today. :thumbup: ” Using Whiteblaze as source of credible information is like a Ph.D candidate citing Wikipedia in their dissertation. :)

    It's not defamation if it is true.

    LOL, so Lenny Dykstra sues former teammate Ron Darling for defamation because of comments Darling made in his book. And the judge dismisses the lawsuit becasue (paraphrasing here) Dykstra's reputation was already so bad that nothing can make it any…

  • 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.
