When I was a child the main male event was the for real camp out with real woods and no adults. My parents’ idea of camping was organized campsites on a creek with a fishing boat to keep us occupied. Evening meant clean the fish or worse, heat the ...

Ok folks, back from 2 weeks on the Appalachian trail through Pennsylvania. I have to say it was thoroughly enjoyable. The trail goes through many towns so food resups are plentiful. Relatively flat but the rocky terrain increased the more north I ...

The Jackson River Scenic Trail runs right by my neighborhood and my boys and I use it quite a bit. Its only a few hundred feet from my house and such a great place for us to walk and ride our bikes and enjoy time together. The annual volunteer ...

I prefer the silence of self propelled travel. I was thinking about how I want to spend my vacation this year. I noticed the Cincinnati to Cleveland bike trail is getting close to being completed and I was thinking that would make a nice week long ...

Visited the Trinity river with my mom’s dog, Stormy. I’m glad that I live close to Gateway Park, but I kinda miss San Angelo State Park.

I just read Grandma Gatewood's Walk. Emma Gatewood hiked the entire Appalachian Trail in 1955, when she was 67 years old. A remarkable book about a remarkable woman. Highly recommended.

I've been paddling 5 times the last 2 weeks. It's great to be on the water. Sat and Sun it rained both times, no problem for me or the people I was with. The smaller streams still have some recent blown-down timber in them. Water is still pretty ...

Cosby Campgrounds in the Smokey Mountains has 175 campsites all on a gentle sloop off a series of elongated circling one lane roads. The camp ground was thinly populated, possibly because within the next two nights it was supposed to get down to ...

If you're in the north east, crampons and snowshoes are still a very good idea. Just hiked in the southern Catskills Sunday, and while there was no snow at the parking lot level, there was over a foot at the summit. Be safe, be prepared.

Not a major expedition, the beach where I saw the otters is part of a loop of three miles start to finish from my house. Heading out for a quick overnight tomorrow, I have a propensity for sleeping under the stars next to a fire I haven't indulged ...

Hey folks! In a few weeks I’ll be heading to Pennsylvania to backpack that section of the Appalachian trail. I’ve heard horror stories about the rocks so anyone have firsthand experience with that section? How bad are they?

Wind chill here was single digits, still I got building supplies first thing. Then I decided it was too cold, and went for a hike instead. Apple Orchard Falls had some ice on it.
