  2. Travis McGee, John Muir, and me, still in Cedar Key 7

    My pal Lefty ain't no rookie. He literally, has been there and done that all over the world. In fact, I can sit and listen to him tell stories of the people he's known and the places he's been for hours. He's that guy you want around when things start to go south and you need a little back up. We have been in some tight spots together and he's never let me down. When I started thinking of hiking from Springer Mountain to Harpers Ferry he was the only person I asked to join me. Other than him, I ...

    Everything is happening more quickly now. I'm not ready yet. I don't have all of the gear that I'm going to need. Got some things for Christmas but will have to return some things due to weight restrictions ...

    It's New Year's Eve December 31, 2015...I am going to make one resolution for 2016 that I will do my best to follow through with.

    " Blow up your TV throw away your paper
    Go to the country, build you a home
    Plant a little garden, eat a lot of peaches
    Try to find Jesus on your own..."
