    Quote from odd man out: “Quote from jimmyjam: “Just had another siting of the neighborhood hawks in my backyard. He landed on the fence and as we were watching him, he jumped down to the ground and grabbed something and flew and landed on the birdhouse. It looked like a little mouse. Whatever it was he tilted his head back and gobbled it up before I could get my phone. Crummy picture right after he swallowed his snack. That bird house is about a foot tall on a 4x4 for reference.appalachiantrailc…

    Been buying AWOL for the past 10 years. Lately bound for planning and leave with my wife, take loose bound pages with me, and have his pdf as backup on my phone. Bought NH & ME Guthooks. Also carry ATC maps for VT, NH & ME. Did same for GA & NC. No maps in between (never needed, only bought GA & NC because I was a newbie and didn't realize not needed for first 12 states). Used the Companion when I started in Thanksgiving 2010. Tried another 5 years or so ago (at least for planning). Personally f…

    Quote from ScareBear: “My BA FlyCreekUL3 has served us well. However, everything has a useful life. And, 8 years and 100 nights....it's showing wear and wearing out. I think my logical choice is the BA Tiger Wall UL3. Holds me, wifey and mutt with room for two backpacks in the vestibules. My Nemo Hornet 2P works fine, for me and the dog. No way wifey and I can spend time in that coffin..... ” I believe you will appreciate the side doors of the Tiger Wall. Great to hear from you again ScareBear.

    Quote from IMScotty: “I'm not sure throwing an entire region under the bus so you can virtue signal to your west coast and publishing friends what a 'woke' person you are qualifies as having your heart in the right place. But, maybe I'm being too harsh. Once while describing some of my travels, I actually had someone tell me that they would never consider traveling through the racist south. The lack of self-awareness is astounding to me. They proudly promoted the same type of behavior that they …

    TJ, I wouldn't worry about it. Your comments appear to be more those of a concerned mother than someone trying to be negative about what they were doing.

    Quote from odd man out: “I honor of opening day, I offer this trivia question about a remarkable baseball statistic that came up on my trivia calendar today. Despite Ken Griffey Jr's prodigious career total of 2781 hits, he is still 850 hits short of the record for career hits by all left handed outfielders born on November 21 in Donora PA, that is held by whom? ” FWIW, I knew that, but the spoiler for instance confirmation was nice.

It's an OK read, but mentions a couple of cafe members by name, internet name. ” C'mon man. don't leave us hanging. ” So, LIhikers, who were the cafe members (internet name) mentioned?

    Quote from max.patch: “The late Steve "The Cocodile Hunter" Irwin's daughter Bindi had her first child last week. The baby, named Grace Warrior Irwin Powell, just had her first croc experiece. Like father, like daughter, like granddaughter -- runs in the family. pbs.twimg.com/media/Ex4A6guUcAIQQAx?format=jpg&name=small ” I assume that is his son on the left. With those arms it looks like he could wrestle some crocodiles if he wanted to.

    Quote from max.patch: “I don't know how you can have a list like that and somehow leave off "The Long Walk by Rawicz". Perhaps becasue it may be a bit exaggerated? I'll mention another long time favorite of mine from 40 years ago -- "A Walk Across America" by Peter Jenkins. Perhaps this reflects my AT bias, but my list would also include "Blind Courage" by Bill Irwin. But "The Long Walk" absolutely needs to be on that list. Edit to add: My favorites from the list would be "Into The Wild" and "A …
