    Quote from LIhikers: “We've run into a snag for this trip. We now don't have anyone to live in our house while we are away. Our adult son was going to do it but he's agreed to house sit for friends who are moving to Ecuador for an undetermined period of time. ” Is there public transit to NYC from where you live? If so, I might have a suggestion of a very responsible person who could do it. Feel free to PM

    Quote from Drybones: “Seems I'm between sizes on everything, a 34" pant is too small and a 36" too big, and you just cant find 35s, shoe sizes stop 1/2 sizes at 12-1/2 and all info on the shoes I ordered say up a 1/2", they don't make 13-1/2 sizes...I ordered a 14...hurts me to think my feet are that big, I was a 12 not long ago, and, as a matter of fact, the shoes sizing gadgets in shoe stores still say I'm a 12 but they don't fit. ” I have always worn a size 8 since I was in college, and on oc…

    As we headed east on US 11, my friend asked if I minded if she made a stop to try to find something for her husband. I said that was fine so we pulled into: appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…b2d248bf618ca8e903c036d5e I headed straight to the bathroom to wash off the accumulated dirt and sweat off my hands and lower arms. Then after admiring all the bikes, I joined her in the discount section where I found a pair of $110 jeans marked down to $41.50. Tried them on and they fit very well. When I took …

    Then I came to a little 1800's cemetery at the edge of the farm fields just barely into the woods: appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…b2d248bf618ca8e903c036d5e Baltimore Jack had told me that when there is a place to sit down along the trail be sure to take advantage. In Georgia and NC, there's tons of large downed trees to sit on but there hadn't been much in PA so I took advantage of the upraised concrete border along the cemetery to take a break and eat my lunch (subway sandwich, chips, red & yel…

    First Saturday home in 4 weeks. I'm happy to report that the hike in PA actually took place. On May 17 after taking car of a lot of business in NJ with my friend's late Dad's car (lawyers office, DMV, lawyers office, DMV, Dad's house in Blackwood, car towed to dealer 20 miles away), we headed back on the turnpike to the outskirts of Mechanicsburg. Stayed at an Econolodge. I had inadvertently reserved a smoking room and there weren't any similar non-smoking rooms available but Mr. Patel graciousl…

  • My suggestion mirrors some of the others. Consider hiking from North Adams, Massachusetts to Killington, VT. Distance 110 miles. I would park at Greylock Community Center on Mass 2. This is just a few blocks from the AT. I parked there before when my daughter & I attempted an afternoon hike. They just ask that you sign in and contribute a donation. (or at least that's what it was 12 yrs ago). Take Greyhound south from Killington to Bennington. It been a few yrs since I researched this but there …

    Going with a friend to Blackwood, NJ in a few weeks to help her bring some of her late father's possessions back to MI. So, I figured we would be crossing the AT at some point. Looks like it will be on the Pennsylvania Turnpike east of Carlisle. Is anyone familiar with this area as to where we can get off and go park for a 2-3 hr out and back hike?

    Quote from odd man out: “Did you stop at the Homeplace in Catawba? It was closed when I went through, alas. I've heard good things. I did the 45 miles from Stony Creek Rd (VA 635) to Four Pines a few years ago. I camped at John's Creek, the top of Sinking Creek Mtn, and at Trout Creek. I only used shelters for meals and breaks. I also had knee problems, but that was before Dragon's Tooth. I had go up and down Dragon's Tooth with one good leg to get to the hostel. That was fun. Sinking Creek Moun…

    Quote from Da Wolf: “vnews.com/A-Life-L-A--Baltimore-Jack-Tarlin-2028432 ” Thanks Lone Wolf. Missed seeing this 2 yrs ago. What is/was Will Greer's trailname? I understood all or almost all the words of the song. Didn't know much about his life previously to hiking. Wonder if the songstress was intimately familiar with his previous life and also if I misunderstood the song but it sounded like she said that Jack's wife had an affair and that is why he left. Will have to listen again.

    Went for another hike yesterday with my meet-up group, Michigan Adventurers Club, MAC for short. We hiked 10.6 miles on the Waterloo-Pinckney trail. This is 33.9 mile trail a little over an hour from my house. I've previously hiked about 5 miles of the eastern portion and another 5 miles of the middle portion. Yesterday's hike was from the western portion. I want to see if my sister wants to backpack the entire thing sometime this summer. Again saw about a dozen and a half horses on the trail. T…

He has to sign over the deed to her. We have untill June 1st to remove any personal property from there. It sucks. I hate to see it go with all the work & dreams that was put into the place. I loved the time I got to spend there! Between hikers hosted or just the serenity of my time there alone. I'll miss it all. …

    Went for a hike yesterday with a meetup group at Brighton Recreation Area on the horse trails. Hiked 11 miles in a pretty hilly area. My legs are feeling it today but I had a great time! So great to be out getting exercise in the woods with some fellow hikers. There were a number of riders out also so we had to jump off the trail about every half hour or so. Beautiful horses. The weather was perfect in the 50's with a slight breeze.
