Re: Leaving the Salt Mine

I should be on the BMT next week! I am pretty excited. It has been a long time since I have been in the Southern Appalachians. And, for an Eastern trail, the BMT is pretty isolated.

All in all, should be a great journey!

Leaving the Salt Mine

Looks like I was just laid off with an ~3 month severance package from my employer.

Being good hiker trash, I need to get a longish hike in. I am thinking the Benton Mackaye Trail.

My only regret? Why couldn't this happen in March! I could do the Arizona Trail! :)

Re: Marmot

They are harmless..until you turn your back and they grab your food! :D

The marmots are very common in the high alpine terrain of Colorado.

Women..depends on my appearance on a given day. ;)
