Catching up with my readers and fans

Well, last time you visited, dear readers, you were reading all about my adventures in the woods of Alabama. There has not been a lot of exciting things going on since then to be honest, but I endeavor to enlighten you on what all has transpired however boring.

Hiking Trip Part Three – Camp

So, I left you last time standing atop The Hill, vowing to conquer it one day with a full pack. I really mean that, too. and have taken steps to facilitate a return attack next year. But we went on to camp from there over a few more streams and finally around the bend to where the tent got pitched and the fire built. My partners, Rambo and Bucko,   wouldn’t let me do much.
