    Quote from jimmyjam: “Well I just got a call from my cardiologist nurse and the halter monitor showed some low HR readings that they are concerned about so they are going to put a pacemaker in. So no hiking for me next week. I hope everything goes well and I can return to hiking soon. Please keep me in your prayers and thoughts. Thanks. ” Bummer, sorry to hear that, hope all goes well.

    Quote from Traffic Jam: “Took a 9 mile walk in Frozen Head SP...I love that park for a quick fix. It was hot and humid. A bandana dipped in spring water was a big help. It was real buggy. Bugs dont usually bother me but uncharacteristically, I sprayed sunscreen prior to the hike (found a full container in the street near my house). Sunscreen and sweat seemed to attract the buggers. I stopped for lunch, used a Natrapel Picaridin wipe, and they immediately disappeared. The last two times that I hi…

    Did 10 miles yesterday on the Pinhoti and Odum trails, forecast was for the 90's but overcast much of the time helped, Odum was hard to follow, overgrown, lot of rock sections, knew I would be about an hour ahead of the rest of the group so I would have to wait for my ride back to the truck, waited two hours and started walking the 15 miles back by road in heavy rain and high winds assuming the others were either lost or turned back, after walking a few miles a kind soul picked me up and took me…
