    I think it was around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday night, what sounded like a large tree came crashing down somewhere close. Thankfully, it wasn't in our camp. I know I didn't dream it either because Running feather and a few others heard it, too.

    Be careful out there!

    Yeah, no doubt! Running Feather told me, "Should we take a 'roll call' ?"
    I heard it as well!
    I guess the lookout for "widowmakers" would extend farther than just the tree you intend to hang from!

    I bet you didn't Tim ... coming down that mountain in the dark and the rain ... you probably were out in hammock dream land at that time of night!

    Meant to tell you that was quite a little hike up to Table Rock and back the two of you did ... pretty impressive!
    Thanks for the kind thoughts Hawk-eye. I am doinng better. I still have a bit of a cough but I hope to kick that soon as well and hit the trail again this weekend. I have once last marathon in PA for the season this Sunday if my chest is feeling up to it.
    And I'll let SC speak for himself but I have never heard of anything that can stop him for long.

    BTW The hike wasn't all that impressive it was the views that were impressive. I'm sure you will see a lot of them when SC posts his video hint, hint

    Great pictures Slowhike! If you have any more night shot from the ridgeline, post them! I enjoyed them all!

    Hangin' Burrito and Running Feather! Great job on the video. It was good to see some of the action from the top of the hill.

    Hooch! Wish you could have stayed another day or two. I was really wanting to meet you!
