  • Hiking & Biking

    All I can offer.... Years ago on a drive out west I camped one night along the Erie Canal path. That morning I walked a mile or two along it, it was pretty and flat, I enjoyed the history, I meant to get back someday hoping to bike some of it but I never did. That is all.

    It takes some skill to photograph snow and record the details of form, texture and shade that you see in person. All I know is I don't have it, but I would like to figure it out.

    Black Friday walk up Camel's Hump in Vermont... appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…034986d08eccfcbdb29d9293e Yup, took the Burrows Trail. I don't usually Winter Hike, and it is winter in the mountains of Vermont, so this was a bit of an experiment for me. appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…034986d08eccfcbdb29d9293e There was once a hut at this site, just a few hundred more feet to go to the summit. I considered turning back here because I was so ill-equipped for a winter hike. Just put together layers f…

    Celebrated the end of our Thanksgiving festivities with my last beer from the 20th century, a 25 year-old Thomas Hardy'sAle. A bit past peak, but still delicious. Cheers! appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…034986d08eccfcbdb29d9293e

    Quote from odd man out: “I also teach my biochemistry students a bit of the biology and physiology of turkeys so when asked "light or dark meat", they can reply "I'll have some of the myoglobin deficient flight muscle adapted for producing a ATP at a high rate but low yield (i.e. powerful but inefficient) using anaerobic glycolysis thus allowing turkeys to escape predatation at the expense of being migratory." I don't think any of them have ever followed through. ” But the myoglobin rich thigh m…

    Quote from LIhikers: “ Kathy and I had a similar Thanksgiving in New York's Fingerboard shelter. The whole feast prepared ahead of time and heated up freezer bag method. Since it was pouring rain all day we stayed there all day doing nothing but eatting and sleeping. The rest of the weekend was beautiful and we spent it hiking on Harriman state park. ” LIHikers, was there anyone else out there on a rainy Thanksgiving, or did you have the whole place to yourselves?

    Quote from jimmyjam: “ I'll wear mine over a shirt and then put my windshirt over all of it and it's probably as warm or warmer than my synthetic puffy. ” That's my combo, merino wool T-shirt, then a light fleece layer, and a wind jacket on top. I like a full zipper on my fleece to regulate temperature. I can hike comfortably over a wide temperature range in this and my wind jacket keeps me dry enough in a light rain. My old fleece is pretty ragged though. TJ, if you go into the fleece business …

    I find it much easier to just leave the leaves there and let the winter winds blow them into my neighbor's yard Only kidding, I live in the woods. No-one cares what I do. I actually just leave the leaves and mulch them in place with my lawnmower with the first cutting in the spring. PS: I think this is the first time in my life I have written the term 'leave the leaves' in a sentence. I had to stare at that for a bit to convince myself I spelled it correctly. The English language is a funny thin…

    Quote from max.patch: “lol, i just got an email coupon for breast augmentation -- $5,950 regular price for $3,925. reminded me of this old episode of "king of queens" when doug got carrie lasik surgery with predictable results.
