    Attitude is a decision: if you look for goodness and beauty, you will always find it.

    Take more pictures of people

    Lean forward going downhill...this give you more traction than just your heels.

    Happy hiking!

    Be aware of how you treat people on your way up ...

    You'll most likely meet them again on your way down ...

    Well, the fact that you are still wearing Goretex gives you away as a total loser with no outdoors sense whatsoever. Give up hiking and turn in your boots immediately.

    Never eat anything bigger than your head.

    Never shoot pool at a place called Pap's.

    Never eat food at a place called Mom's.

    When will you be back?
    In the fullness of time - expect me when you see me.

    No Sniveling about covers most things. Can't beat the simplicity, and it is nice to remember when I start bitching about trail conditions or something I can't really control.

    How about these good ones:

    "That dog don't hunt."

    and

    "Don't tear down a fence until you know why someone put it up."

    Anyway, you know, after many years of being a cav scout and a hiker, the best advice about packing came from some of those younger fellers out there like Hungry Howie and Sweeper. Old dogs can learn things occasionally

    Huah!

    I'm not an ultraliter... yet. Each day as I get a little older and little weaker, I'm hopefully getting a little wiser (mostly from info I glean from WB members) . I adopted (alright stole ) my line from the ADK trail guide to the Northville-Placid trail. I think it speaks volumes.
    I would much rather be anywhere on a trail right now
    than just sitting in front of some computer reading about it.

    What would have been is what was.

    Any landing you walk away from is a good one.

    Anger and self-pity weigh more than a pack can hold, but a good laugh will lighten any load.

    Oh, and one more: If you never find yourself wanting something that you decided not to pack, you probably pack too much.
