  1. Blackrock Summit, Hut, and Spring - Shenandoah National Park


    This is the section south of the Falls over Blackrock Summit and to the Hut. Blackrock hut is nondescript and has an unreliable water source.

    I'm continuing to creep my way south though SNP on the AT. I might actually get it done this year. LoL.

Following mutual greetings of “Happy Fourth of July”, she commented on his red, white and blue equipment/garb and proceeded to examine his gear from a distance of several feet. A discussion then ensued about his trail experience to date. In that discussion Jax Dad remarked that he found the hike pure drudgery; it was one step after another with little opportunity to observe more than where the next ...

  5. More ultimate slackpacking

    My style of doing The Trail -- about which I have spoken several times -- inevitably leads to a few gaps in the miles I have hiked over. Specifically, I have missed about thirty miles of the A.T. just north of Damascus. Fortunately, my "Free Shuttle, With Benefits"

    had a few days off during her university's fall semester break. Thus, we went down to that area for R&R, and completion of my miles.

    I can hardly call it backpacking ...
