At long last we have snow on the way. Looks like snowshoeing is just around the corner -this Thurs. or Fri. and for who knows how long! I’ll just have to wait and see what blows in…where and how much! I may end up anywhere within a 75-100 mi radius, depending on the track of the storm, temps and moisture. Gonna be fun. I’ll let you know next week how it all goes -complete with photos. I may be alone or with friends on this adventure. One thing for certain – I won’t be camping! Possibly some radio work (VHF/UHF only). Looking forward to seeing lots of deer and maybe even a wolf or two if I get lucky.
Who’s up to hike the Appalachian Trail (the AT) starting in Georgia on about March 1st, and heading 2,000+ miles north to Mt. Katahdin, in Baxter State Park, Maine. About a 5 month adventure +/- a few weeks. Mike N. is an experienced hiker looking for another hiker (or 2-3) to join him for the thru-hike, or sections thereof. Meet him along the way if you’re short on time; do a section or two, or join him and hike all the way to Maine. Check his blog for more details and follow it as he does front-end planning, then hits the trail and posts his daily progress. Can’t make the hike -just follow his blog and wish you were along! It’s just that easy – get the details here. Hell, maybe I’ll meet him and hike a section or two myself -Vermont (near Killington) up to Franconia Ridge might be a fun trip. Likewise maybe a section around Harper’s Ferry or down NC way. Get your maps out and see what looks good. Maybe I’ll see you on the AT this summer!
