    My father practiced self dentistry glueing back a crown that fell off and he ended up losing the tooth. With this in mind I did a quick search and came up with this from a dental practice. <Snip> "The key to keeping a crown in place is the right shape…

    The origin of this term is from the railroad. Since trains can't make a u-turn like cars or people, they would stop, throw a switch, and back up a different track going up. The keep repeating until the get to the top.

    Kathy and I finally made it to Front Royal,VA. Some businesses have made a Hiker's base camp, a place for free showers and laundry. Of course they kn ow you'll spend money while waiting for your turn at shower and laundry. Turns out we'll be in town longer than expected because Kathy needs to find a dentist to cement a crown back on a tooth. We'll see. She's also considering crazy glue. I'm trying to dissuade that idea.

    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.
