    Stumpknocker is having a heck of a hike. He started hiking the AT early in the year, got off the trail and biked across the country with Mrs. Gorp, then got back on the trail and is in PA! This is his 5th ( I think) hike of the AT. Great journal and awesome pics. He usually updates it everyday if you want to follow it. Hikerhead and I had the pleasure of visiting with him when he came thru Roanoke. We ate at The Homeplace. Rock on Stumpy!

    Crazy hike, wish I could have met him. I'll have to find out if he's going through Portland on his way back.

    He's in Millnocket, waiting for the ice to melt on Katahdin.

    the climb has been closed for bad weather for the last several days.

    Per his trail journal.

    He is now done with his 2008 hike (#6). He is planning on spending some time in the north this winter and on to another trail next year.

    He'd need Jan to write it to sell any copies. No one wants to read about Starbucks coffee and AYCE fried chicken and hostels every day
    Anything's within walking distance if you've got the time.

    Now that really hurts!! I used to drink Starbuck's, but here's what I drink now; http://www.wrcoffee.com/index.php?ma...products_id=91

    I haven't had any fried chicken in almost ten days now....and I don't usually stay at hostels. I prefer Hampton Inns.

    A-Train.....can you recommend any good fried chicken places up here in Burlington, VT? I know you lived here at one time.

    Just going out to do mostly day hikes with the snowshoes on. May do some longer sections where roads are closed and spend a few nights out along the Trail.

    Just out playin' for now.

    What are "peeps"? Are they any good fried??
