    Thumbs up Thank you

    I just wanted to say Thank You to the White blaze community.
    Through all the debates – guns vs. no guns, dogs-no dogs,
    Bear bag – keep your food with you and all the rest, one thing
    always came through, everyone’s passion for hiking.


    The idea to hike a section of the AT just came out of nowhere
    for me, but the more I learned here and a couple of other places,
    the more important to me it became. Almost to become an obsession
    the last couple of months.

    So last Saturday 5-22 at 10:15 I made my first step on the approach trail.
    By somewhere around 3, I was sitting on the rock at the top of Springer, with
    half a dozen Cub/Boy scouts and their leaders, 4 girls hiking together, and
    4 or 5 other guys and I was simply elated. By 6 I had my tent up and was getting
    water boiling for supper. I will always hold that day in my heart right next to
    my wedding day and the births of my daughters.

    I’m not sure I would have fallowed through with the idea of this hike,
    without this community.

    For that, I thank you.

    I did have to get off the trail at Unicoi due to an Ankle injury but not
    before I had met some amazing people, saw some amazing things and
    got at trail name “Fred.”

    I am already planning to go back this fall sometime.
    I want to pick up Jarrard Gap to Neel Gap. A couple of other guys and I hitched
    to Neel. (just could not chance a bear encounter) Then go back to Unicoi and
    get as far as my time then will allow.

    Thank You

    Fred

    As soon as I saw it I had to see how they fit in the side pockets on my pack a
    Flash 65. They fit perfectly, they are shaped like a flask. The only thing is they say
    FRED in big white type, so after running into the same group over a couple of days,
    next thing you know I am answering to Fred.

    Haha, I don't think he's holing his breath ... I have recieved a few comments on it, it's a shortened version of a daily joke... I'm thinking of changing it to my new "signature"(below). Sory for the thread hijack/drift...

    Happy Trails and all that...
