  • TJ life is something one cannot be surprised about, my son clearly had a negative attitude to leadership training. Ashley my granddaughter, has embraced Scouting, fishing, hiking, biking, and is now challenging me to be there for her. I don't exspect Girl Scouts to deliver, but I am educating her with "fill in the blanks" stuff and told her so. She loves it. Food for thought "Arise, cry aloud in the night At the beginning of the night watches; Pour out your heart like water Before the presence o…

  • Interesting father's day weekend. That's Deanna my wife of 35 years. and Ashley of 8 years. My grandfathers day was a few miles from the AT at Jonestown KOA. The trip was Hershey Chocolate. We had a wonderful weekend, and after changing meds and stuff, I can't keep up with an 8 year old. Fishing time is good, bicycling is awesome.. Hiking is too painful, everything below the knees. There isn't a med that can fix this. appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…a100a5bd240ad447209ee35d7

  • appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…a100a5bd240ad447209ee35d7Wow have I been off line for a while - there was a computer crash that took me out for two weeks, this is the replacement Belle, she was a puppy and now a year old. Ashley is now eight! riding a bike, and had her first kayak trip. Hiking is around the corner after the next fishing trip. Girl Scouts - well I think they think its odd that I volunteered to help out and be a part of the group. Most of the younger dads are useless, Ashley has be…

  • Long distance hikers, Ötzi from 5000 years ago ate large amounts of sheep fat and other high energy foods to stay alive in cold environments. It is important to understand how to render lard, as once you do it. The fat or fat back will stay shelf stable for a week or two in you pack... but its tasteless. You have to combine it with a protein and other foods. I am working on a Sloppy Joe idea here. youtube.com/watch?v=QieI4Xnr7uY

    Quote from Time Zone: “WOO, Triamcinolone is good for eczema. Good to not take it for too long as well. But what you described - you sure you didn't have athlete's foot or some other fungal infection? That's the first thing that it sounded like to me, based on your description. A dermatologist would know, of course. TZ ” Yea it was eczema but to me it was side affect from the blood pressure medicine...and I did not take it long term... it's surprising how fast it cleared up once I had the right …

    Quote from max.patch: “i wonder if it's the hyaluronic acid? that's something that sooner or later is gonna get injected in my knee -- the cortisone shot i got about 3 months ago wore off pretty quick. i'm tellin the doc to kick it up a notch and shot me up with something stronger next appointment. ” A Cortisone shot should last two years. Otherwise a CAT scan and Xray should be done. A good knee surgeon should be consulted. My surgery on my knee years ago was a walk in the park and I am very ha…

    I thought about making a separate thread 191 views and three posts... well how many of you take chondroitin and glucosamine? Well Stop... I tried it for two years and just found something better. A year ago during a conversation with my joint specialist.... he would not condemn or praise this stuff. So after hearing the advertising for Relief Factor. My wife did the homework and discovered that INSTAFLEX is the same thing... and one pill a day is amazing. After four days my typing fingers are mu…

    Quote from LIhikers: “Do any of you who enjoy bicycling use a quick link in your chain? I'm thinking of putting one in the chain of the bike I use for commuting so I can remove, and clean, the chain easier and quicker. I'd like to hear how having a quick link has been good or bad for you ” Most quality chains have one link to aid in removal - but unlikely will you need it, teflon oil is a quick easy way to clean it.

    Age, medications, and pounding down the trail over time leads to some issues as you get older, for hikers and non-hikers alike. Allergic reactions, eczema, and psoriasis something I have never had in the past, has creep-ed up on me and clearly attacking me on the feet. The sores open up, itch and bleed on a weekly basis. At first I just suffered with it, and then I borrowed a few topicals from relatives, knowing that there isn’t a cure really irritated me. After a discussion with my doctor we fo…

    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 House Mountain natural area …
