    Beth in Alabama

    Hi everyone,

    I've been using this site as a guest for a while, and the resource has been invaluable. Time to make an account and get involved.

    I'm a Brit, (living in the South currently), and an avid traveler. I have recently amped up my game when in the wild, and have stepped into the SUL realm with much joy. I love to hike, and really get back to basics. I try to live minimally in general.

    I have some plans for some long term trekking, so I'm actively improving my set up and pack. I'm searching for some new insulation - so I'll be headed to that forum shortly.
    I'm doing some flip-flopping on the Appalachian trail, and the Inca trail in May.

    Great to be here!
    Beth

    Welcome from Florida.

    Hey Ewker, I noticed your orange Tennessee.
    I was going to make every other letter of my Florida orange & blue but it's too hard on my phone!

    I would imagine it is a lot easier on a computer than on the phone.

    Welcome! Currently in Kentucky, but gonna be staying in Tupelo Mississippi (your close neck of the woods) from Feb to September... you will have to check out natchez Trace trail also (2 hours away).
    .... the Aardvark (earth pig)... a rather unremarkable creature whose sole claim to fame is that it is the first animal listed in the dictionary.

    I REALLY must hit the Natchez. It's embarrassing considering how long I've lived here and not hiked it. With cooler temps coming, I'm inspired. Thanks!

    Mutts' nuts, AKA - Dogs' bollocks!

    It felt great yesterday. Went out for a long walk in B'ham and the promise of fall was in the air!
