    Quote from Astro: “I guess this is one way to hedge against all the arm injuries by throwing max effort all the time. Just be able to throw at least 95 with either arm. mlb.com/news/jurrangelo-cijntj…903-mlb-1-A&lctg=32178618 ” That is Amazing! And you are right, he can injure one arm and still be a MLB pitcher. Wow.

    Yesterday was pretty nice here, so I brought my BIO for non-majors class outside to explore the 'Rocky Intertidal Zone' for a while. Then I decided to just keep them out there and do the lecture next to the crashing waves and the screeching seagulls. At 48 degrees, they found it rather chilly. I thought it was perfect Ha, still having fun! appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…57518fb376afb907161ecd8ec

    OMO, Congratulations! You must have mixed feelings about that? I maybe could retire, but I am having problems letting go. Committed at least for another year. I'm still having fun. Besides, my young wife needs to work for a while longer, and she would have a bird if I was home enjoying myself all day and she was not. S

    Quote from rhjanes: “Great stuff. I used to frequent Trail Journals but have not in some years. Is there a way to get rid of all the ads?, or cut way down on them? I do have a logon but I'm not sure I was logged on. ” I get one irritating ad after the first 'click' but after that they seem to go away for me. I log in. S

    Quote from Astro: “Looked at the mileage graph at the bottom, and really impressed with the 176 mile day on the JMT. ” Ha, ha. That is an artifact from when I combined my 'JMT miles' Trail Journal (which I did first) into my PCT miles.

    I have finally updated my Trail Journal to include my PCT section hike from LAST AUGUST! You can tell I am not feeling the Trail Journal thing anymore. Honestly, I started doing this mostly so my wife and kids could follow my hike, but the truth is they are not interested. The kids are busy with their own lives and it is hard to find time for their parents. They magically think we will be there forever for them. Actually, my son is good about coming around, it is the girls we never get to see. O…

    I think the question should be worded "When does overnight camping season typically end. If I understand correctly, you can climb Katahdin in the winter (unless the trails are closed for other reasons) as long as you can get in and out of the park in a single day. You have to be a beast to do that. though.

  • Quote from StalkingTortoise: “Great... I just found out that I'm headed to Bethel VT next week. I'll get to welcome spring one more time then come home and mow my lawn for the 6th time this year. ” The snow is melting fast. I am sure it will be gone in the valleys by next week. You should still be able to ski the glades at Killington, though.

  • My Eclipse photos are garbage, but here is a report on my trip... appalachiantrailcafe.net/index…57518fb376afb907161ecd8ec With forecasts of clouds coming in, I bailed heading to my preferred spot in Burlington, VT on the shores of Lake Champlain. First after driving through the night I arrived in the large (for VT) town of Newport near the border with Canada. But I was not feeling the vibe there, and left searching for someplace more rural. I found it in the tiny town of Westmore. This field sl…

  • Been watching VT weather all day. I am unsure what to do. High clouds are expected to arrive in Burlington, VT right at peak eclipse time. Not bad enough to ruin block the sun, but may make the corona harder to see. Still will be clear further east, but the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain was my preferred destination. Thinking of Colebrook, NH now. Not as ideal of a destination. Too excited to sleep tonight (same thing happens to me before a big hike). I'll leave about 2 AM and decide on the …

  • Yes, I do understand the small VT towns not wanting 100,000 flatlanders showing up and then needing rescue services from their all volunteer emergency services. I had some thoughts of climbing Camel's Hump for the eclipse, but they have closed both access roads to 'locals only.' I will probably end up on the shores of Lake Champlain.

    LI Hikers, I felt it all the way here in Boston. About 10:25 AM I felt my chair moving. Went out into the hall, "Anyone else feel that?" "Yup, was that the wind? Nope, had to have been an earthquake.'" I knew for sure when I tried to log into our local Geology station to see the seismograph (BC's Weston Observatory) and their server was too overwhelmed with requests to reply.

  • Quote from odd man out: “weather is looking a bit better in Indiana than Ohio, so I may go that way. It's the same distance so I can decide at the last minute. If I miss this one due to clouds, there will be a total eclipse in my backyard in 2099. ” That is exactly why, although I have been looking forward to this and planning to see it for several years, I made no reservations anyplace. Flexibility is key.

  • Things are looking good for the Northeast. washingtonpost.com/weather/202…pse-forecast-maps-cities/

  • Norther NH is worried about the same thing. The eclipse crosses Coos County up near the Canada border. The roads are not built for traffic up there and this is 'Frost Heave' season. The roads and the motorists are likely to take a beating.
