    Quote from Traffic Jam: “My son has ditched me to hang out with some girls Friday night. The nerve! He says he is still going to hike with me on Saturday but that remains to be seen.

    Quote from rhjanes: “It's Texas. A week ago we were in the middle of a freezing spell after a strong cold front. Today it is 72 degrees and sunny. Tomorrow 11/19, it will be 76 degrees. I had planned on raking leaves but that didn't happen..... ” Spent a couple of hours raking leaves with my youngest son today. Lot more enjoyable when you have someone working with you.

    Albert Mountain to NOC is 37 miles. AWOL shows parking near Albert Mountain, but not sure how good it is. I know the road to Wayah Bald is long, winding, and slow and have parked there only during the day. Winding Stair US 64 and NOC US 19/74 should be good for parking.

    Quote from IMScotty: “Terrible story from Hocking Hill State Park... boston.com/news/crime/2019/11/…ried-as-adults-for-murder ” I hate that those two teenagers ruined their futures over something like this, but I hate even more the four teenagers who lost their mother (and a husband a wife of 21 years). You really do have to come down hard on this to prevent something like it happening again. On the hand I hope the "safety measures" don't ruin the beauty and experience for the other 99.9999% of …

    Quote from odd man out: “didn't baseball used to have 2 very large divisions per leage? In that case, I thought the wild card system made sense. Now that there are smaller divisions, I can see having only the winner of the division go through. But with only 3 divisions, you need a 4th to get single elimination playoffs. So how about adding one more expansion team per league and reorganize into 4 divisions with 4 teams each and have not wild card? Then we can argue over which city should get the …
