    Hello from the beautiful Black Hills, SD

    Hi all

    been lurking the forums for the better part of a month now and am very impressed with all the knowledge and information to be found here, i have barely scratched the surface and already know a 1000 times more than i did

    i live in the the Black Hills of South Dakota (Spearfish) and have been an outdoors person since the tender age of 6 months old when my parents took me camping for the very first time, haven't missed a year of camping since (43 years) sheesh i'm getting old

    haven't really done any long distance hiking but do manage to get out pretty much every week for day hikes usually 7-15 miles every week, atleast weather permitting, the winters can get pretty bad here, both in snow accumulation and temp. last year we got approx 200 inches of snow and that puts a bit of a crimp in the hiking, just got our first snowfall of the season last night, just a skiff though

    found the forum because my gf and i are in the pre-planning stages of maybe try to thru hike the AT, hopefully we can pull it off, seems a daunting challenge......guess that's most of the allure for me

    anyways just wanted to say "hi" and hopefully i will be able to add something to the great forum and community you have here

    you need to visit the area sometime when the rally isn't going on, you can get out and enjoy the hills pretty much in solitude, although the rally is something to behold.........hard to describe until you've experienced it
