What's up peeps? I haven't been posting because, well, I haven't been hiking. Last time I put foot on trail was with Nartreb on Mt. Washington this past January. Work got busy. Family got busy. House got busy. Then I got sick and that knocked my down for about 6 weeks! But I'm feeling better and hope to hit the trails soon... maybe this weekend. I'll see how that goes, then I'll have to dream up something worth posting.

Sorry to hear about all the troubles. My own hiking has been curtailed the past year or more due to having to finish writing novels I was contracted to produce. Plus the knee surgery last year. But I'm out there from time to time. You will be, too. Looking forward to your great summitposts!

Cool! I wish I lived closer to the mountains. Two hours away is too far!

Very nice trip report. The photos are excellent! Nothing like full green vegetation in the south east!
