    I Just Should Not Have Gone Back

    I just got back to Atlanta from a 6 day trip to Tn, Damascus, Va and Linville Gorge area. While I was at Trail Days I did the normal walking and talking to vendors to see all of the great stuff.

    I got into town on Friday and found a spot to hang. This was no as easy as I thought it was going to be. My biggest problem was trying to find a spot that was not completely covered in Posion Ivy. Once I was set up it was time to head off to the Park. It was great. I got to talk with so many of the fine folks that make all of the gear we wish for.

    Saturday morning came around and I had decided I wanted to make my way down to Linville Gorge instead of sticking around Trail Days or another night. So I packed up but before heading out of town I decided to make one last stop at the vendor area. I knew I shouldn't have done that.

    So what do I do. I stop off at Hammock Gear for a long talk with Adam and end up handing over my credit card for a new Four Season 12' Cuben Tarp. It packs so small, is so light and shiny (or maybe that is just my ADHD kicking in). I just could not resist any more and now I can't wait for it to get here.

    Now all I have to do is sell my OES 4 Season Tarp.

    Yeah, Adam has some odd way of drawing you in for the kill. I had to sell more than my OES tarp to get one of his beautiful tarps, but I'm glad I did.

    Your subconscious must have known that you really wanted that tarp and led you back over there.

    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    The Powers of the Ginger are a mysterious creature that few dare to cross.
    Experts are the ones who think they know everything. Geniuses are the ones who know they don't.

    Gather round your hearts the tinder,
    lay the oak and pine together,
    kindle all that is within you with a warm and cheerful spirit.
