    My sip or skip advice... Skip the glass of bourbon if you’ve already had a glass (or two) or wine. You might post about pricks on WB.

    Quote from StalkingTortoise: “In today's edition of "Sip or Skip", I will review Calumet Farm Small Batch Bourbon. High $40's in the PA State Stores. A premier product from the Bird Dog Whiskey folks. appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…f0802e781bc53974ec8f92e9f I was initially disappointed with the overall taste based on the price. For a few dollars more, I could have bought another fifth of Angel's Envy. As a control, I followed up my test glass with a sample of Four Roses Small Batch. Suddenly, th…

    One of my favorites, Coopers Craft, dropped in price from $26 to $19.99. This concerned me...why would the price drop? Was the quality affected? I asked the sales guy and he said they came out with a new...vintage (is that the right word?) and they “tier” the price. I bought my son in law a small bottle of Belle Meade from Nashville and a bottle of Coopers Craft. Then found out he only drinks bourbon mixed with other stuff and wouldn’t appreciate the Belle Meade so he gave it back to me.

    Hopefully heading back to the Foothills trail in a few weeks. It would be nice to finish this before it gets hot.

Tell you what, I will commit to take at least one short walk in the coming week and post if the rest of you do too Mostly, I am looking forward to the summer right now when the weather and the time I have to do things improves. ” Challenge accepted. Thanks for the motivation.

    Quote from Astro: “One thing I have started taking to baseball games this year is hot hands. Never considered taking on a hike, has anyone else? Probably not worth the weight, but might be nice to have for an emergency. ” I carry 2 of them in winter just in case but have only used them once in my socks at bedtime. Thy were great and made me feel real warm. My problem is I forget that they’re in my pack so don’t use them.

  • That kayak is gorgeous, I’m green with envy.

  • I got $29 and have been lusting over the Teton fleece pants for camp pants. They’re so warm but won’t pay full price because I’ve seen them on sale in the past and figure they’ll go on sale this spring. Also need a pair of stretch pants for spin class. I noticed mine have a hole in the ass. I always ride a bike in the front row so figure everyone’s been getting a good laugh during spin class.

    This guy is an inspiration...he’s awesome. I don’t care how far he gets, he got off the couch and he’s a winner in my book. It takes so much courage to do what he’s doing. It’s easy to sit around feeling sorry for yourself, staying in your rut while your health declines. It’s hard to take the bull by the horns and do something about it...especially when you don’t have a clue what you’re doing. I can totally identify with him. And he does it with a smile. His laugh is contagious.

    Rain, rain, and more rain. Flooding has been terrible and someone died when they drove into deep water about a mile from my house. I’m sick of it. I feel like it’s unsafe to hike...with the mudslides, sinkholes, and raging rivers. I wonder how the January-start thru hikers are faring, it has to be miserable. It’s so damp and this week it’s going to be very cold, with lows below 20* in the valley (no telling what mountain temps will be.)

    Quote from Wise Old Owl: “Quote from Traffic Jam: “I had a nice walk today as I explored House Mountain just outside Knoxville. Not many actual miles to add to my (still nonexistent) 2019 Mileage List. It was only 3 miles of hiking but about 20 miles for the smileage list! It was amazing to hike up to the ridge and sit for a while, listening to the sleet, gazing at the view with a thermos of coffee by my side and cheese, pepperoni, and bagel chips for lunch. Hiking in winter is wonderful. The Ho…

    Walked 3 miles the other day on some local trails with a 20# pack. It was muddy and there were some blow downs so the pack had to be removed and pushed in front of me. It was a muddy mess but fun. Oops, just remembered my muddy shoes are still in the car.

    It’s gonna be 66* today, 70’s tomorrow and Thursday (cloudy, rainy, and cloudy again). For me, it’s about the sunshine, not the temp. It’s been so gray and rainy all winter that 30* and sunny is 100x better than 70’s with rain.

Took the NyQuil last nite and woke up at 3 soaking wet.......... would you call this the Flu ? ” Either that or menopause. Hope you feel better soon.

    Walked 4 miles with a 15# pack. It was on asphalt. Trying to decide if that constitutes hiking and can be added to my mileage? I sat down this morning and started my 2019 mileage list. One of my problems is sometimes I don’t know how many miles I hiked and have to guess.
