    Most women's skirts have a back vent/slit if the skirt is narrow. Impossible to climb stairs in a narrow skirt without the vent. Stepping over logs, and climbing up boulder fields would require a...

    I typically carry a small frying pan, which I use for frying and "baking," which is just pancake-style cooking. I've used cornbread mix and muffin mix. I bring some stick margarine, and a small...

    We intended to hike Siestita's suggested route beginning tomorrow. But, after viewing these pictures from elsewhere in the region, I think maybe we'll save this excursion for a safer time!

    TNhiker and JNI64, I'm leaning pretty strongly towards NOT crossing the bridge, especially if it's tie-to-tie with open air between! Actually if that's the case, it's a most definite no-no-no-never!...

    We're planning a visit to Lost Cove near Burnsville, NC in early May. I've found a couple of good descriptions of the place and the trek, and a 10-yr-old WB thread.

    Glad to see you got out there!
