    Sorry Ty Cobb, but effective tomorrow (Wednesday) you no longer have the highest career batting average. And Babe Ruth, you somehow just lost the highest career slugging percentage. Oh well, records are made to be broken or some such nonsense.

    Finally Angel Hernandez "retires". Coming from South Florida I have great respect for Cuban-Americans, but that does not justify you keeping a job that you are universally considered by all involved to be the worst at. MLB knew how bad he was but…

  • Winter Linville Gorge

    On February 27th, 28th and 29th I did a two night out and back trip from Wolf Pit Road trail-head to Table Rock mountain and back. In typical cafe fashion I planned this trip while driving 80 mph east on I-40 heading back from the Smokies. I stopped at a McDonald's to borrow some free Wifi to get a picture of a the trails and away I went. Going up Wolf Pit road in my 2002 Honda Accord was risky with the amount of ice and snow on the road. The final hill going down to the…
  • Great Smoky Mountain National Park

    On February 25th and 26th I did a nice loop in the Smokies from Big Creek Ranger Station parking lot to Deep Gap along the AT south of Mt. Cammerer fire tower. There was about 6 to 8 inches of snow while going up. I stealth camped due to the amount of snow coming in and the next day went down the Big Creek trail. Overnight there was another 6 to 8 inches of snow and freezing fog.
