    Thanks for the videos, really enjoyed them. I saw one of the better sides of me in a photo that I've not seen in quite a while.

    Additional words on the event.

    When Heber and I were finishing up the loop hike Friday afternoon we were greeted by the sound of fellow hammock hangers calling to us from the deep woods. Begging us to take them home.

    These hardened individuals who enjoy the bite of winterís cold wind, braving the frozen tundra, exchanging the comforts of home to endure the wild creatures of night only to cry like little girls. In other words, they carried 50 lbs of food 2 miles into the forest and declared themselves real men once again. Ah the means and methods to get out of house work.

    Quick notes from this encounter with the PA Wilds:

    Watching and listening to a Svea 123 white gas stove brings smiles to men and scares young children.

    Christmas lights around the campfire are not a bad idea. If you are not the one carrying them in.

    Oat meal every day does begin to get old. Especially when Jim fries up bacon and eggs right in front of you. sigh...

    Frozen shoes are not as bad as they appear on wilderness videos.

    I was warmer on the trip in the woods layered up then at home with 10 foot ceilings and temp set at 68. heh?

    The least wet socks still keep your feet warm. whoda known.

    Smoke really does follow beauty. just sayin.

    If I had hair again it would be green.

    Fried donuts over a white gas stove? Slap the head. Thats just way cool. I could have had Heber carry all that stuff in for me.

    Heber and I are famous on a trail camera with dead deer in the back ground. Famous for not seeing the dead dear in the background...

    You feel younger when a 30 year old asks, "you hiked the whole loop"?

    You know you succeeded in staying warm when lying in the hammock with the top quilt pushed back, listening to the owls at 4 AM. Yes I know... no pictures it didn't happen.

    And yes we are crazy. But we all had a great time.

    Great times and memories that endure. Thanks all.
