    Quote from Traffic Jam: “Does anyone keep track of AT hiker stats and how many people started at Springer every day in Jan? I’m trying to calculate how many people I may encounter in an upcoming AT hike. ” What section are you going to hike?

    jimmyjam - - Trail Health

    Post

    Quote from Traffic Jam: “Ya know... the older I get, the less I care what anyone thinks. Purple hair, pink crocs, tight pants, who gives a crap? ” Exactly! I'm all about comfort and utility in my clothes. I wear jeans with patches on the knees, not because I can't afford another pair but because they're comfortable and still have use. Later I'll cut them off into shorts, keeping the cut off part for garage rags. I quit caring what other think of what I wear a long time ago. I've never chased fas…

    Quote from CoachLou: “Quote from IMScotty: “Talk them into a September girls trip.... Then do Maine or New Hampshire ” why not both? ” there's a chance I'll get an opportunity to hike for a week or so this summer too.

    Quote from Drybones: “Quote from jimmyjam: “It looks like I'm going to get lucky this spring as the wife is going on a trip for two weeks with her best friend. So I'm going to plan something as I just don't get these opportunities much. Where should I hike? I'm thinking maybe I go back to the Grand Canyon and maybe hit Bryce too. I'd like to finish off New Hampshire and start Maine but I think it'll be way too early to go that far north. I guess other options are the BMT, Linville Gorge and ????…

  • 2019 Hiking Miles

    Quote from SandyofPA: “No hiking miles in 2019, my husband is fighting conjestive heart failure. I don't dare leave him alone. As long as "nursie" is watching he eats his "heart healthy" diet and takes his medicine. Without my cooking he would live on McGriddles for breakfast and Chick-Fila for supper! He has improved greatly since a week in the hospital in March. The neighbors keep asking where my backpack is though. The garden did real well in 2019! ” Sandy, I am sorry to hear about your husba…

    Went to Pocohontas SP yesterday for mountain biking. Tons of riders. As I was taking a break at a trail intersection with a handful of others I saw something red and white moving down the trail towards us at a good clip. As they got closer we could see it was Santa Claus, well actually Ms. Claus. She whizzed right thru us smiling wearing only the typical Santa hat and a very short Santa coat unzipped to reveal substantial cleavage and short enough to show off white bikini underwear- I kid you no…

    Quote from Traffic Jam: “There wasn’t much of a Christmas at my house this week but I did make some pesto parmesan star bread. Baking is a stress reliever for me. I was up at 5:30, mixing up some sourdough. Now it’s time to work on packing boxes... appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…38d447da55c3818636f514427 ” Wow, that looks almost too good to eat. It's art.

  • What Are You Reading?

    jimmyjam - - Books

    Post

    I've been reading some SF, taking a break from the westerns. Currently reading Earthbound by Joe Haldeman. Read Starbound right before it. Also reading the Gabriel DuPre series by Peter Bowen. DuPrey is a Metis living in Montana in current times and helps the FBI solve crimes- so good murder mystery with comedy.

    Post

    Tried of your pillow constantly slipping off your pad? Here's an easy fix. I used to put my short sleeve shirt over my pad and slide the pillow under it. Kinda sorta works. Hard to adjust the pillow, can't put a hand under the pillow or hold the pillow, and after a couple of days of hiking in that shirt- well you know- it's like trying to sleep with your nose in your armpit. So cut two pieces of light webbing or grosgrain and fold them in half to make a loop and CAREFULLY sew one on each end of …

    I just saw something really cool and unfortunately did not think to get a picture. The big momma hawk was apparently giving flying lessons to her baby. They were riding the thermals and swooping and banking. I wish I could get an up close picture of her from behind with her wings spread to show her yellow ring tail, truly a magnificent raptor.

    Quote from LIhikers: “Are you bike packing? ” No, I carried the bike on my truck to the park which is a little less than an hour drive. It's a really nice park, big enough to get lost on the trails. The park is 12 miles square, that's 7,680 acres.
