    Usually costs far more money to execute/house a person on death row than to keep as an LWOP. At least the state of GA doesn't have to provide superMax care for him. I would suspect that his desire...

    The roomettes are very worth it. it is a bunk bed system with a small toilet. The room is much like a comfortable cell. But it is so much better than being crammed in with others, having to worry...

    Need road conditions

    I'm taking a couple of young boy scouts for an overnight this weekend up to the AT. I'm tending toward two cars (one SUV and one Ford Focus) to park at either end. I'm wondering about the Focus's...

    There is far more titillation in discussion of this Summer Soltice tradition than in the real event. Smelly sweaty nude hikers are just as attractive as smelly...

    As much as I like Neels Gap, I'd recommend NB. You have much more wiggle room for the end of the hike. For instance, if you decide on Winding Stairs Gap for a pick up and are running a few miles late...

    Poll: Anyone know about the roads from ATL?

    I am planning to bring the family, but now it is 7 and we have a Chrysler minivan - not a 4WD. We are likely to leave after 5PM. Black ice is a huge problem already tonight locally. I really don't...

    LOL! The bears just seem so jumpy and scared around me. Haven't been able to hand feed them ever!

    It is fun in Spring to set up near salt blocks and enjoy pony visits during the night.

    I'd question the weight benefit of freeze dried given the packaging implicit with it. If you can plan ahead and buy produce when in season/cheap, you can do extremely well with a dehydrator....

    Bring carrots for the ponies. I echo the recommendations to start at Fox Creek and use the Va Creeper trail. There is no good reason to cross the road and climb that empty ridge just to walk into...

    LW has the best preventative - compression shorts. Diaper creme is a great solution, easily found in any size town.

    I've quickly browsed the thread over the last 2 days. The Bugs have LW, Gypsy and all in our prayers.

    Get back and be obnoxious soon!
