    Did 10 miles on the Arkansas River Trail and saw white tail deer, squirrels, and a cardinal. But had my phone tucked in my jacket due to expectation or rain, so no pictures. Did take it out to get pictures of these guys on the Maumelle River.

Looks the same color of Brooks Cascadia I once bought. Although I probably didn't move half as fast in mine as he does. Elf looks like he is working on his dances moves, and the rest of y'all are nodding your approval.

    Quote from max.patch: “I thot this story about Aarons last home run was an interesting read. latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-20…ontent=link&ICID=ref_fark ” Very interesting! While Aaron was by almost all counts a very good person, we see here like the rest of us, he was not perfect.

    RIP Henry "Hammerin Hank" Aaron Perhaps the greatest player I ever got to see play in person. And a great person too. For a homerun hitter not really that big of a guy, but he had amazing wrist. He hit 44 homeruns three times, which was his uniform number. I remember a person from the Braves saying they wish they had given 55 or 66. Hard to believe it has been nearly 50 years since I sitting with my mom watching Monday Night Baseball when he hit 715 off Al Drowning and Tom House caught it in the…

    Quote from max.patch: “Dads in Tucson so I try to read the newspaper there somewhat regualrly. A few times a year there are articles about people who either go hiking and run out of water (some are rescued, some are not) or fall off a cliff at the Grand Canyon. There is also a mountain near Phoenix where hikers and bikers run out of water waaaay too often. Last summer there was group of doctors -- who should know better! -- who were biking, ran out of water, and one of them passed away. I guess …

    Quote from jimmyjam: “I wore the jacket around the neighborhood today. It was 45° and the wind was out of the NW at about 20mph. So it felt a lot chiller that it was. I'd say a real feel of more like 30° or less. The jacket does a great job of not letting the wind thru because of the non- sew thru design, elastic cuffs and the below the waist length. I wore a ls cotton pullover and a cotton "wife beater" T under that. I was warm. The jacket has a nice feel, great fit and nice deep hood. I'm 6' a…

His family were poor farmers so all his shirts had come from feed sacks that his mother had sewn.

    I have to admit that Osprey doesn't look anything like the ones I have seen on the trail so far. Seriously, great pictures and I trust you enjoyed the warmer weather of my home state. I know I sure miss the weather this time of year.

    Quote from odd man out: “Not on the AT, but close. Wondering if anyone knows of this place? Just saw this story on Atlas Obscura. It seems there was a plan to build a road all the way across the southern end of GSMNP along the north side of Fontana Lake as part of the deal to build Fontana Dam back in the 40s. Only about 7 miles of road was built from Bryson City into the park where it goes through a half mile tunnel and the dead ends. Curious. ” Thanks for sharing. I will have to there some tim…

I quote him all the time in class, second to Peter Drucker (well maybe third if you count Jesus). His quotes often sound silly at first on the surface, but usually really deep when you think about them.

    BOVCESAEMJAE5JIDS7FS7WLOMU.png I could see thru hiking from NYC to Buffalo (or the reverse), but from Albany to Canada is around 90% on road, so that might be better just to bike since it is a multi-use trail overall (some snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and even snowmobiles in some places).
