    You've have indeed created a monster but in this case it's a good monster
    Time to start buying pink hammock stuff for presents and remember the days that trail life was a man dominated activity

    Reealy looked like they where having a great time(well - it would be hard, to not enjoy yourself in a beautiful place like that...)and they showed a great attitude

    Wow, you could beat off a grizzly with that stick.
    Great to see people out on the trail at any age and good for you for taking them out.
    It was a great day ... and we're planning repeats!

    The BJ Falls look lush. Garshk....I do love the Rock Jock. The stacked stones is where Hickery and I rode out the storm last year.
    Short sleeves too.... we get some snow today.

    A right goodie there Hawk-Ustus.

    Yeah buddy ... I knew those were Shug-row stacked! Question though ... did you fellers camp above the trail or below the trail?

    Right on! Good job, ladies, with clearing that trail, too!
    HA ... it was a great trip and she did a most excellent job of stick removal!

Seeing that place just makes me want to go there soon. Glad you and the family had a great time and I'm sure they'll be back for more of the gorge.

    Oh yeah they're already making plans when I return from this trip. Laughs per mile were intense.

    Lokks like it was a great time, and great company too.
    Sure do ... that's a fact! And I survived it!

    Another nice video Hawk-eye! Those ladies had a great attitude and it seems that the magic of the Gorge has got 'em.
    That Julie has an adventurous spirit, or she just wanted to antagonize the others.
    Glad you'all had a great day in the Big Ditch. Sure am looking forward to getting back there.

    I make up names for trail features as to keep track of my progress. An old pre-GPS habit. I call that spot the "Hickory Brothers Bead and Breakfast." The name just stuck in my head, along with alot of other useless information.
