    Great Video, convinced me to buy a stic pick. Also nice to put a face to the name, hopeing to get to meet ya at the NJ hang and we can compare our stormcrow's.
    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.

    HAVE NO IDEA ... why the video says "could not load video" on the iPhone ... but did get to see it on my PC ... Fun to see whose behind these avatars!

    Looks like a steep section of slipper trail with no protection from the wind! Hope that back heals up on you so that you can make that hang. Wish I could.

    Enjoyed the video!

    Nice video. Unless I miss my guess it looks like you are on the north side of 61. I knew when I walked down that hill a couple of months ago ,that i was going to be in for a real treat and I was right because the hill on the south side of 61 and the river just past the train tracks is a real treat.

    Greenlespaul,

    Thanks.
