VIDEO: Part 1 and Part 2 Linville Gorge, NC Pre-Halloween Hang
Finally!!!! ..... back home to my own abode.......
The Linville Gorge was Healing to my soul and having the chance to meet all the HF members and too get to hang with two dear and old friends of mine, Hickery and The Turk, was a blessing. Hickery and The Turk and I have not all been together in 15 years ..... we go back to Jr. high days and have all 3 backpacked the Gorge together several times in the past.
This video covers Monday night at the top of the Gorge by the Conely Cove Trail with some of the hangers, Mrs. Hangin' Burrito's Banana/Walnut/PeaNut Butter Bread, some set ups, Stormcrows Umberella balance (we are peas-in-a-pod), The Packa, the hike down in the rain and some rigs down by the Linville River.
My camera got wet on the walk down in the rain and died a slow death .... still no pulse...... but got the video off of it. So until I was able to hike up and get my second camera I missed some good footage of the rainy tuesday night. it was fun to huddle under tarps and catch up with Hickery and The Turk and then go tarp to tarp for lil' visits. That was a rain blessing!
Working on Part 2 today!
Thankee to Stormcrow for additional footage and to Slowhike for letting me use his battery as the one on my second camera was near gone.........

Wow, great video, thanks Shug. Sorry to miss it. Beautiful scenery, even in the rain.
