  1. Teacher & Gumball

    Gumball is my 11yr old great-nephew who has recently joined our household. He was intrigued by the stories of hiking the AT with Snacktime and wanted to give it a try. We've had several local jaunts and he seems to legitimately enjoy spending time in the woods. I was planning to start my very own section hike at Springer this fall, and told him he could join me if he was up to the challenge. In May he first set foot on the AT with a leisurely stroll along the Pochuck Boardwalk in NJ, and in June ...

    Snacktime and I are gearing up for our Upper Goose Pond Cabin trail magic bag delivery trip.
    This year is going to be extra-special, as we'll be accompanied by one of our favorite hiking buds, our 6yr old cousin and grandson.

  5. What is it about Damascus?


    Last September Snacktime and I made our first trip to Damascus. We rode the Creeper Trail and stopped at the Café and had chocolate cake. We hiked the highlands and saw wild ponies. We took photos under the arch. We ate at the Blue Blaze and met "Mayor", had shakes at Dairy King and smoothies at MoJo. We visited Mt. Rogers Outfitters and Sun Dog Outfitters. We visited The Place and met Atlas along with stinky and wonderful hikers and cyclists enjoying their adventures. We stayed
