    Thumbs up VIDEO: Shug & Hickery's 8 Night Linville Gorge Wilderness Adventures

    The long planned for journey begins.......... On Monday May 10.
    Off to the Linville Gorge Wilderness go Hickery and Shug ... old friends from boyhood. Hickery was Best Man at Shug's Nuptials..... boy scouts together.....football.... wild days buddies!
    Never knew that we did so much singin' when we are joyful in the woods.
    What a time. We felt strong and confident with each other watching out for the other.......
    The Linville Gorge will break your little heart at times! Then for all the pain ..... a glorious reward is given.

    Thankee for watching...
    Shug

    Thanks, Shug! Days of sick kids here. Definitely a nice change of pace from dealing with the plague...

    Nice video Shug...I'm going to have to check out the linville gorge when I'm back stateside. Sounds like a great place from all of the trip reports I've watched and read.

    I've lived long enough to see "Linville Gorge ... the Musical"! Shug that was great. You guys must have had a total ball. Looking forward to the next part.

    Excellent video diary, Shug & Hickery! You really captured the wildness of the weather and the terrain. Looks like an early start is a good thing on the ridge from Spence to Shortoff... perhaps with a more modest breakfast!

    I haven't been down that way in 30 years. Probably wouldn't recognize it, since the fire passed through.

    You and Hickery really need to take this show on the road making singing documentaries. I really think you could sell this stuff. Nothing else like it out there. If I weren't at work I'd watch it over and over. I guess 3 times is enough for now. Better get back to work!

    Next time an earlier start is in order. And no oysters!
