Hike with Dad (part 2)

Well, the hike with Dad was awesome. It was a cold New England Winter day, minus the snow. We hiked in Newton, CT. around Lake Zoar. There were pleanty of small streams to cross, and an amazing waterfall. We went about 6 miles in all. It was a quiet day, save for the numerous hunters all around us w...

Hiking with Dad at Thanksgiving

As I look back at the last few days/week, and some of the heated discussions that have popped up, along with some feelings being hurt, I think of why I started this hobby......My Dad. When I was a little kid, my dad would take my brother and I up to New Hampshire to climb Mount Monadnock (the most c...

In response to Abe's reply: I too beleive in the spirit of the law, i.e., What it means, not what it says. As for Whoopitup's comment, there was a previous message about the ARS and what you can and can not show. It has all the nice PC words. And she is right, "What is offensive?" Again, a crime ne...

In response to Sredfield's reply: I have not heard of such. Usually they would work together on something, so as not to step on toes. the mix works well sometimes, and at others it does not. And Rodney is right. Be very careful when trying a cops buttons. What some officers find funny and sarcastic...

From a "Cop" point of view: People/citizens always like to PUSH the proverbial envelope where law is concerned. They "Know" their rights. In this case, I would not try to find out if the statute applies. If it is posted there, it means that there is where it applies. Hey, it's a free country, if som...

Cakewalk, I can do the second weekend as well. And, if I recall, someone stated that a clearance vehicle is preferred. I have an F150 4x4. The pretty kind. you know, the ones that say 4x4, but have never seen any action. Count me in. From all the prior descriptions, I am guessing that I should cance...

When I sit and ponder why I have set up camp in AZ as opposed to New England, the sunsets are a major factor. They make everything alright. Good eye.

In response to bzachar's reply: Samantha, based on the numbers. If there is a fight, Samantha has Tabitha and that wicked Ole mother of hers. Three on one, the numbers say it all. However, Jeannie's husband is in the Military, so you would have to factor that in as well. Now we have a totally new t...

Re: checking-out!!!

In response to pfredricks' reply: That was GREAT!!!! People (not everyone), learn from pfredricks. Gosh there is so much out there to "really" be upset with. name calling, and the correct placement (or incorrect placement) of a few nouns, verbs, adverbs, etc., should follow right along with the ole...

OK, so according to the author page, 5 more hikes moves me from #113 to the top 50. Also, I find that leaving the writing to those with the proper vernacular is better. I tend to be, shall we say, Cro-magnon in my writing style, which would leave those whose eyes fall upon my dossier a bit dissatisf...

Tucson Hiking

Can anyone tell me, or others who are interested, what the status is on hiking in Tucson. I was wondering if the fires from this past year have made any of the trails close down, or burned to the point that there is nothing to see. I just don't want to hike in an area that should be left alone for r...

I too am a TEVA lover

I have had the same pair of TEVA's for some time, and they are awesome. I even play golf in them. Nothing like kicking them of for a few minutes while putting on a nice soft cut green. I have not hiked in them, though. When I get to the hikes that require many creek crossings, I will now utilize the...
