    Thanks for posting the video. You did pretty good for just random clips! Know what you mean about just enjoying the trip. Last time out 2sticks and I just enjoyed being out in the woods. Rayn shot some video so we still got to let mom see some of the trip.

    Going to have to get back to the Ditch to spend a few days. Just got a taste of it in the fall but it was enough to want more.

    I believe this was the best hike I have ever been on. Tom & Jerry were great hiking partners. (And no one made fun of their names all week.) We joined forces with the Hickery Bros, which made for an exciting day, then met you and Glenn at the trailhead. After a nice dinner at Louise's, sitting around the 100 year old fire pit was really special!
    Thanks Mac ... good to see everyone this trip wasn't it? With all the online chatter preceding the gathering ... it shapped up pretty nicely

    Hope to see you there sometime soon pal ... and of course 2sticks will always be the queen of the Ditch! Might be able to stir up some more blue Jolly Ranchers for her highness!

    Man, I was really wanting to make this hang but had some last minute issues come up. Thanks to Mac and Hawkeye for posting the videos and hopefully I'll make the next one.

    Everyone just looks likes a blast to hang out with. Next Spring, this Fronkey will make sure he's hanging in the Gorge with everyone. Thanks for sharing and glad you had a great time and got to spend some time with your friends.

    Hawk-eye, had to chuckle at you and me coming up with the same idea for making the video for this trip! I figured there were one or two segments of 10 to 20 seconds in each video file that were representative. With Thing1's help, it worked well!

    Thing1 is jealous, and wants to go to the Gorge this summer. Maybe I'll do a trip this summer with Thing1, Smiling Face and IronK, using the state park campground as home base for the Egg Roll, with overnight hikes between swimming holes.
