I added pics from the day hike to the Walker Sisters' Place and the hunt for the Yellow Lady Slippers to the gallery I put up last week from mine and Loonie's four day AT trip. You can find those here. Starting to dig my way through the pics from mine and Deep Woods AT … Continue reading Gallery Update…
Little by little, I've been making my way through all of the pics from this last trip. I finally put up a link to the gallery for mine and Loonie's four-day backpacking trip on the AT and down to Cades Cove, which you can find here. Many of these pics were covered in my posts … Continue reading First Gallery is Up!
Still WAY behind and trying desperately to catch up before little details fade away. I need to start using the voice recorder on my phone throughout the day to make note of things, seeing as how I can't write worth a crap anymore. I did want to mention that if by some odd chance … Continue reading Wrappin’ Up Week One…Finally!
So, "007" used some of his masterful intelligence skills picked up in his service to The Crown on the other side of the pond and found Loonie, her sister and I a room in Maggie Valley so the girls can go off and do somethin' or another. You're probably wondering where Loonie's sister came … Continue reading Where In The World Is Bulldog?
Well, I find myself now in Hot Springs, NC not hiking but sitting in Laughing Heart Hostel watching it rain and listening to "007" sing every song that comes on the radio. He's got a case of shin splints and has to stay put for a few days. I know what you're thinking: "What the … Continue reading Stuck in Hot Springs…

The long drive and little sleep coupled with a HEAVY pack that's brand new and I don't quite have the adjustment down yet and the warm temps....I'm draggin'. Loonie's not so quick to get out of bed either. But we finally do and … Continue reading Dead Legs to Derrick Knob

Well, as usual, things have changed yet again. It appears Loonie and I are going to hit a fantastic bubble of weather - sunny skies, warm temps, low wind speeds, little chance of precip - a perfect recipe for a Spring hike along the AT in the Smokies, so that's what we're going to do now. … Continue reading Screw The Rest Of The Park – We’re Headin’ To The Top!
Just when I thought I had this whole “Google Photos” thing figured out, I discovered that I used the wrong links here to our albums there. No harm done. I think I’ve got those fixed so be sure to check out the “Past Trip Droppings”. Plans for the upcoming trip in the Smokies have changed … Continue reading Change of Plans…
Plans are starting to come together for this spring. Loonie and I will head down to the Smokies for a week in April where we'll spend three days backpacking and the rest of the time day hiking in the hopes of getting some good wild flower pics. The annual Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage will be goin' … Continue reading Spring Dreamin’ And Some Awesome New Merrells
