(he creeps the forum, but hasn't joined.) Look for two skinny twenty-somethings carrying Osprey packs!
    Our itenerary for those dates: Frid 15 July - Follow Pine Creek Trail to Blackwell, the road over creek joining up with Bohen Run Trail. Follow BRT up passing a waterfall, rejoing WRT at mile 26.5. Follow WRT N. to where ever for the night. All depends on how we feel, how long we spend in Blackwell or possibly at noted swimming hole near falls, or any particular vistas we passed heading South that we may want to head to for this night.

    You are more than welcome to join us. We'll be a group of 5 at this point, and 2 more will just add to the fun. Plus you and your friend will get to see a few different hammocks and enjoy some awesome company!

    I just remember something. Flys, the buzzing kind. 2 years ago no problem with them at all. This year few more the normal but not a big deal. Last year however, it was like a plague. I've been up there the last 4 years all in June. May want to call a local outfitter is see what it's like this month. Just a thought.

    I've had my zpacks cuben tarp out several times now. Through a few nice thunderstorms. Simply love it for it's size and weight. Amazing!

    I've got my food purchased and everything else ready to go. I'll actually pack Tues. morning as that doesn't take me long. Everythings in one place, just not in the pack yet!

    I'm bringing a video camera along to shoot this trip. I'm hoping there's a few others as everyone has different perspectives. It's always good to see others photos, especially from the same trip!

    3 days and a wake up!

    As a matter of fact, I have a neighbor down the road who has hiked the Pine Creek Gorge (Pa. Grand Canyon) and gave me some great advice about the Porcupines and their love of cars.
    He told me to sprinkle under and around my car about 2lb. of sugar and perhaps a couple blocks of salt to keep em at bay. He then told me how surprised I would be when I see the results upon returning to my car.
    His advice really surprised me as I thought he was really pissed at me for outbidding him for a wheelbarrow at an auction last week.
    He was always the type to hold a grudge for years!! He must have had a change of heart!!
    See ya on the trail!!!

    LOL!!! sure sounds like he's not the kind to hold a grudge at all - i think he said something about getting the salt right up on the engine hoses to protect them... i'm going to put lots of sugar in my shoes...

    That's the reason for the salt "blocks". I think you want one of those cow lick size. You really need to get them up high... They are afraid of heights you know.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
