    Quote from IMScotty: “Quote from max.patch: “Thanks for the reminder, that's on my IMDB watch list. 5.1/10 rating there. Even if the movie isn't any good, I enjoy looking for places that I remember as well as obvious errors. ” Everything I recognized was shot in VA ” VA is not Maine. Believe me I know, it took me 8 years from when I entered VA to when I officially walked across the NH/ME border. I wish Maine was as easy as VA.

    Latest plan is BMT in May/June and then Colorado Trail Collegiate Loop in July/August. If I can get out of Physical Therapy soon should also complete original Ozark Highland Trail (164 miles) and may be even the new parts (total of 254 miles). Along the way I am getting a good collection of maps and guides from the ones I have considered (Long Trail and Sheltowee) and still hope to do in the future. Took advantage of the FarOut (Guthooks) 30% off Christmas sale (including the entire AT).

    Quote from odd man out: “Quote from odd man out: “Quote from jimmyjam: “Grand Canyon. I've been five times now and I'm still blown away by it. ” I've been wondering about itineraries.Three or four nights? Corridor or Hermit loop? Transportation and lodging logistics? ” I won the GC lottery for a five day hike at the end of April: Night 1 at Bright Angel Night 2 is Indian Garden Night 3 is Monument Creek Night 4 is Hermit Creek One problem is the first day is just 2 days after my class ends.

    Quote from Traffic Jam: “Nearly ready to bake. And to make it relevant to hiking, this is my breakfast for an upcoming trip! ” Looks Great. Evidently they are difficult to make. One of our local bakeries only makes them on certain days.

    Quote from IMScotty: “Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours... appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…c377c6cd49cb0a71dd97dc685 ” Looks like a TBT (Throw Back Thursday) picture. Best family pictures are always when people are happy. Love the smiles!

    Quote from Muddywaters: “.need larger pack for cold conditions and more gear often. ” Plan to order a new ULA Circuit today, but I still have my old Catalyst in my closet for times like that. Can get winter gear and up to 5 days of food in Circuit, but go to the bigger pack if out for longer.

    Quote from LIhikers: “Your plan sounds like a good one. So good in fact that my wife and I are talking about doing the same thing, but starting in September. Do you have any experience with long distance, or even short hikes? ” Great question, you can learn a lot of valuable things from shakedown hikes!

    Quote from mdb1: “Hi! I am planning to hike half of the AT next year, starting sometime in August. My idea is to start in Harpers Ferry and walk SOBO to Georgia. I wonder what your thoughts are about this plan (about the starting date, choosing that section of the AT, how crowded/lonely it will be, the climate...). Thank you so much in advance! ” Other than weekends you will probably find a lot of solitude. Some SoBo's might be passing you as you go, you will not be all alone during the week. Ca…

    Quote from IMScotty: “Hello All, For several years now I have been picking away at the northern half of the Long Trail (the non-AT portion). Usually just one weekend hike a year. Well, I finally finished the top half. Saving the rest for another day. Figured I might as well finally publish my Trail Journal. There are twenty entries if you are having trouble falling asleep tonight... trailjournals.com/journal/entry/395503 Scott ” I guess between the two of us we have now tag teamed the Long Trail…

    Quote from IMScotty: “Astro, I think it would be fun to consider doing some hiking in Ireland. Maybe your wife would join you if it was Inn to Inn? Have you considered just doing the Collegiate Loop in Colorado? Would make for a nice two-week trip. Since you have done the AT part of the LT, have you considered just doing the northern half to finish it off. Scott ” She wants to do a quilt tour, not walk. I really enjoyed the AT part of VT and hope doing that again would help prepare me for the la…

    Quote from Astro: “Colorado Trail starting at beginning of July, hopefully finishing in 5 weeks or less. Tune up hike in June, probably SNP for 100 miles or so. Or perhaps another trail. ” With wife's family reunions canceled last two summers due to COVID and elderly aunts and uncles passing away, my wife realy wants me to go to family reunion with her in July. Which ends my Colorado Trail plans. So now I am thinking Sheltowee Trace Trail in June while she is gone to Ireland. Then after family r…
