    What happened to your ribs?

    The night hiker Count Baron von Wisenber's image rarely appears on video taken during daylight.

    But did we at least look like manly ballerinas?

    Looked like a great trip indeed.

    Hope the arm is feeling better and that ULA was indeed packed very small for a trip like this...

    Thanks for sharing ...

    I really think he is a vampire, his image is not recordable That night hike was a great feat for a lowly human but he probably flew up.

    We almost had to rename the falls on Snake Den Ridge trail to "Spam Falls" Luckily that last little ledge was there Wisenber made it across by moonlight.

    Thanks for the concern b2r. Just after Spamburglar and I reached the AT, I slipped on ice and my wrist took the brunt of it. Plenty of "vitamin I" took the edge off and my buddies helped me out. Ten days later it was still sore just above the wrist so I went to the doctor. Luckily the x-rays were negative.

    The stream crossings are far less intimidating when they're not fully visible.

    I do recall one crossing that did not appear to have a clear route that would avoid wading as the temps were hovering in the teens and the hair on top of my head was a block of ice. Just as the phrase "This is really going to suck!" went through my mind, I did see a way to pull it off.

    Most of my Saturday was spent well behind the filming as a constantly pondered how I could have made the same hike with about 15 pounds less in my pack!

    Nice hike! Beautiful country! Thanks for stitching those clips together. Making me want to head South now. So many trails, so little time.

    thanks for the video, hangnout. Snake Den Ridge didn't treat me or my son any better--that sucker is steep! Looks like you all had a good time.
