    Thanks all for the comments. I've been traveling all week and haven't had a chance to reply. It was a nice trip.

    Not a TN cap, just an orange Nike one... I was in a relay race once (Hood to Coast) and we all wore the same hat so we could find each other

    Glad you are feeling better. We'll have to connect another time.

I would have kept the fire going at camp while you did the trail! Like I told you at the Yates Place Hang, that's one trail I can say I did, but I'm not sure I want to repeat it!
    For some reason I didn't recall the difficulty of the hike in this conversation... Of course once you say "views" the rest fades out.

    I'm sure we'll get some more chances.


    Thanks again all for the comments.

    Very well done. Also a fine example of do not believe everything you read.

    Dont over do it man!
    Great report. Thanks for the take-along.
    First time near the BRP? You'll find hundreds of hikes off the Parkway.
    Loved your 'house', wonderful tarp set up.
    Stunning views! The shot with the lone tree-remarkable.
    I think, but maybe wrong-that the original AT route went through that area-maybe???
    Nice vid from you. We need more

    That was great TallPaul! If I'm not mistaken, you're using a Granit Gear Vapor Pack; I have the 60 liter version of that same pack and LOVE IT!

    Also, I agree with you about trekking poles; they help going up hill but REALLY help going down. My knee is shot and it's harder going down than up surprisingly.

    thanks for the great Video; nothing weird about talking to yourself on camera....at least not too weird!

    Thanks Gideon - I do love the Granite Gear pack - now called the Crown VC 60. Only 2lbs and change, plus 65 liters for capacity in winter when you need it.
