    Glamping and mountain bike riding with my hiking buddy, Slingshot, and some other friends. We went for a night time ride after a few beers and rode one of the more challenging single tracks backwards- because we could and we knew no one else would be out there at night doing it. Saw a herd of 20+ deer. Great ride. Rode the same trail this morning in the correct direction. Getting my confidence and some air on the jumps. appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…214c93a9acf3e03d2ded13084appalachiantrailcafe…

  • Quote from StalkingTortoise: “Quote from Astro: “ ” Did y'all know that you can't ship alcohol to yourself in your Joe Dodge Lodge care package? It's against USPS rules. Good thing my good buddy Smoking Sox drove down to PA before the hike and hand delivered my bottle to the lodge. I mean... how else could it have gotten there? ” I'm going to pretend I did not read that.

    Quote from Drybones: “IMO...if you are a casual rider it doesn't matter much about the bakes, if you do serious down hill you want the hydraulic brakes for sure...just stay off the front one. ”

    Quote from odd man out: “scamptrailers.com/showroom/13-…-trailers-layout-1.htmlWe have had a pop up for car camping for 20 years. But we just use it for a bed and storage. There is a three burner stove that hooks up to the outside under the awning. Would maybe like to get a hard side trailer to save the hassle of setting it, and now that the kids are gone, we don't need sleeping for 5. But all trailers have many bells and whistles I don't need. All the utilities would be more trouble than they a…

    Quote from LIhikers: “Quote from jimmyjam: “I took the plunge and bought a Trek Marlin 5. A lower end mountain bike compared to some, but Trek has two models below this one. It's a 29er so it'll roll over obstacles nicely, 3x7 gearing, hardtail, front shocks, and hydraulic brakes. They changed the seat for me to a thicker and wider seat. Took it to a local park that has a 3.5 loop and gave it (and me) a good workout. I had forgotten how hilly Forest Hill Park is. ” Disc brakes are good but I don…

    Quote from odd man out: “Yesterday I got a bottle of Wilderness Trail Single Barrel Bourbon as a gift from my son in law (born and raised in KY). Having some tonight in an Old Fashioned. I'm do expert. I thought it tasted a little camely. Since it's called Wilderness Trail, can I also post this in the I Went for a Walk Today thread?. Maybe I'll get some Wild Turkey and post it in the Wildlife Sightings thread. ” If you drink the whole bottle of Wild Turkey and then post, I'll bet that we'll not …

    Quilts now come with straps that are adjustable, allowing you to connect the quilt to your pad and cinch in the sides as tight as you want. Works great. See the Enlightened Equipment web site for info. I also have a thermarest vesper quilt that has straps

    That's been a problem area for a while. Even when I stayed at Boots Off Hostel about a half mile away we had an aggressive bear running back and forth just on the other side of the fence for a while. It was the only time I ever felt threatened by a bear.

    Quote from StalkingTortoise: “Ten days from my departure for New Hampshire. My hiking prep has consisted of working in my yard on landscaping projects. So far, I have aced the 'sweating like a pig' portion of my training. Surprisingly, manually moving large quantities of topsoil from curbside to the bottom of my yard (steep downslope) has done wonders for my quads. I guess they do most of the work when I'm fighting the downhill momentum of a wheelbarrow full of dirt. My buddy Smoking Sox has bee…
