    Post

    Thank you MP and LW for the updates. I'm in stunned shock. Have some thoughts but don't want to speculate. Also concerned about what friends/family will now say about my plan to backpack starting next weekend but further north, probably starting at the TH to McAfee's Knob.

    Quote from Drybones: “I wish REI hadn't started pushing politics, I used ti enjoy shopping with them. ” I haven't noticed that they've been doing this. I received an email yesterday that the REI Outlet was having an on-line sale. Bought a lot of Smartwool: socks for both myself and my daughter and a pair of glove liners.

    I'm going to be doing a section in VA. Leaving next Thursday and was going to go to Damascus so my husband and I could ride the Creeper Trail on Friday then jump up north a bit for a section in the Roanoke area. But over on Troll's site I noticed that Trail Days is next week (I had thought it was this week; doh) I found the Trail Days website and there appears to be some good presentations, Jennifer Pharr Davis among them. So, I'm not sure what to do. I would like to go but not sure if the husba…

    The only thing I know about Duluth Trading Company is what I've seen on BTN. Their commercials are on frequently during football and basketball season. Seems it just sells clothing for men who are no longer athletes (that's the most diplomatic description I can come up with ). Love the commercials with the cute beavers. I thought they just basically sold on-line but your thread had me google and lo and behold there's a store on I96 on the way to 2 of my normal hiking locations. So, I may stop an…

    My daughter said she had 6 inches of snow near the lake in Chicago on Sunday and her dog, a rescue from Texas, wanted NO part of it. My sister lives in Mt. Prospect. Not sure how much snow fell there but my nephew made a HUGE snowman. It's in the 60's here today. I'm ready to plant flowers; just a bit concerned if we might experience a freeze yet.
