  5. Rock Carvings at Long Creek Falls in Georgia

    I thought I had some photos of the carvings in my gallery but don't. Has anyone ever seen the actual rock carvings? I once had a link to a story about them but have lost it in my "piling system."

    Sawyer Snake Bite kit

    I've never had to use for a snake bite but have used one on an attached tick. He was dug in pretty good. It made him loosen his grip in about 20 minutes. YMMV.

    I'm very lucky

    That my wife enjoys hiking / backpacking as much as I do. My heart goes out to you guys and gals who don't have that luxury. There is no doubt it has helped us become closer as husband and wife. ...

    Very good campsite

    One of the best, although dry, is on the AT ridge line of Wildcat Mountain. If you're going North, it's about 50 yards before the sign pointing to Whitley Gap Shelter. It has an overlook into Town...
  17. Local Forest Service Comment

    He told me "that's only 1% of the entire forest, you'll never miss it. Besides it's land that is unmanageable"

    That's what I use as a section hiker and, yeah, it's heavier than most but it fits me just right. I tried the Arc Terx equivalent and the Gregory Shasta but settled on the Osprey 90 because it was...
