    5716 miles-17 days-12 minutes

    Some might like, added 30 more NPS units in a trip out west. 2 hammock scenes but mostly scenery and the obligatory shout out to Grizz and Shug:

    MM, thanks for the great video and what a great idea. When I think back at all of the National Parks I have visited and not documented in my life, well lets just say that I sure wish I had. Starting today I am going to start. May never get back to all of the ones I have visited in the past but sure going to try. You have inspired me.

    Thanks for sharing the ride!
    I also enjoyed gettin' another look at the Canaveral Hang. Makes me want to go back. (Maybe in the Fall - it's not called Mosquito Lagoon for nothing)

    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    wow, there's a trip.
    Were you actually hanging at Bandolier? I've been there, I get up to Los Alamos NM pretty frequently and that's a quick drive over.

    thanks for posting, from many sectors (not secure, but abandoned since you left )

    SouthMark-46, Marshall Islands and Guam will be painful.
    Cakes-thanks..just waiting for someone to slam the Kalimba! Someone on youtube tore my ocarina apart
    CrankyBear-and not a drop of rain the whole time-hughs winds from Oklahoma on.
    GrizzlyHackle-I just wish there was 'digital' when I started.
    Grizz-yes hung at Bandelier, in fact hung in a lot of the NP units excepting Chaco and I could have if I'd had rope(s) long enough and BIG enough. If you hang in the Bandelier Campground it's 1.5 mile hike to the ruins WITHOUT them being open yet-so if you get up early and I was walking a little past sunup, you can beat the tourbuses. I had the whole place to myself for 45 minutes. In fact a lot of places on this trip there were scant people.
    Next trip back to the AT to nibble on NH....got a surgery scheduled first so wish me crossed fingers
    Dutch-monumental? I'm humbled but thanks. The west is totally worth it and just so beautiful in its own way. You will miss the east though-when I crossed the Mississippi I was thankful to be in Dixie!
    Timberr-I'd come back to Canaveral ANY time for your and the Mrs. clams!

    Please forgive the sidetrack. I just had to respond...

    Critics: They make nothing so they risk nothing.
    FWIW Gumbo & I really liked your ocarina song. Okay, so it was only one song. You'll learn others.

    After watching your video of the trip I'm certain we'll be planning another trip. The skeeters own the islands until Sept/Oct so it won't be til then. But stay tuned...
