fatpacker: The encounters with people thus far have been the big difference over my journey last year. Where we were on somewhat overgrown trails and failed to see another person for four days last year we have run across numerous people this year. I believe if we were traveling in the opposite direction…
Meanwhile, the preparations are nearing completion.
My son has an accent.
Today when we got done at the Doctors to learn that his wrist was hyper extended and not broken (thankfully) they wrapped his wrist with an ace bandage. When asked what the doctor had given him he responded. The doctuh put a ca-yast on my ha-yand. He’s going to have a rocking birthday party tomorrow.

hikingmeetup: Welcome to the official Hiking/Tumbling Backcountry Meetup Tumblr. Tumblr: un-Plugged. We will be posting weekly/bi-weekly as the need arises with the intent of keeping you informed and as up to date as possible. We decided that a lot of communication will be important for this gathering…
You may or may not have deduced that I like to plan things well in advance. Now that I’ve decided to run the tumblr unplugged in the later half of 2012 I will be spending time with the idea and planning of it at least once a week. I promise I’ll set up a separate tumblr for it soon though the existence of the other page will not eliminate postings here because I will reblog or...

timestolen replied to your post: Cookie Hierarchy I ate some raw #2 earlier. It was delicious. That sounds pretty awful. I’ve got some hot #2 in my mouth right now. It’s not awful at all.

I really should start an entirely new tumblr for this natural tumblr down/tweet up I’m planning for next year. For the moment I’m just going to talk about it and continue making posts here. I randomly typed out Tumblr: unplugged in the title line and think that would be just a fine name for our soiree into the wilderness. If any of you are more clever than I (like, all of you) then I’m open for...

I will wait until you’ve gathered all of your things, shut your workstation down and have 1 foot out the door before making you cone back and do the 5 minute task you could have done 45 minutes ago. That’s just the kind of boss that I am.
To be clear.
I will eat all of the meats. I more than proved this in Dallas. I don’t buy in to the free range organic stuff. When people are ready to go free range, organic, no medicine then maybe I’ll buy into that for my meat.

ronbailey: Is how some people have no concept for what food actually is. What it means to plant a seed in the cool of spring, and devote months of labor to see a crop through to harvest. To raise up a baby calf, and then to slaughter and butcher it for dinner. To see life played out in blood and dirt, so they might form an appreciation for how the world works outside of their sheltered little...
The Dallas Tex Up really was a ponzi rape scheme.
I’ve noticed that I have been replacing ‘If you are’ with ‘Be ye’ in my writing. Be ye wondering where I’m at later, my eye patch fitting is at five.
High Sierra Tumblr-Up (hikeup? UPTumbl?) PLEASE...
Ever since I made this post earlier today my wheels have been turning. I’ve pretty much settled on going to the Bearpaw Meadow High Sierra Camp. I think this location best for a number of reasons. For those that don’t like ‘roughing it’ while outside the site offers actual beds, showers, and flush toilets. Breakfast and Dinner are provided in the cost of the...
For a luxury backcountry experience:
We could do the Bearpaw High Sierra camp. WWW.visitsequoia.com/bearpaw.aspx We would need confirmation by January 2nd to make sure we could book the cabins. It would be about $110 per person/night. 3 to a cabin. Breakfast and lunch included. I’ve done the High Sierra trail and the area surrounding this camp. It is mindblowing.
National Park Tweetup
It has been thrown out more than once that a hiking/Backpacking tweet up would be of interest to more than a few of you. I’ll be more than happy to plan one for June or July or August of 2012. I’d figure we could do Kings Canyon, Sequoia, or Yosemite. Who’s interested?

fatpacker: Day one of the annual journey is winding down. The hike today was an excellent kick off. It feels incredible to be back on the trail. I’ve had a few hikes in between the big trip last year and the one we’re on now but not nearly enough. I left Merced at 7:15 with Katie and the kids. We first…

In my notebook.
I have a lot of notebooks. Big and small. It’s a bit of a problem. I do have some that are for very specific purposes and I have some that are just there so I have something to write on. The book I brought with me on the trip is one of those general purpose books. I was flipping through it’s pages and found the following notes from nearly twoyears ago: 9/13/09 Grandma’s...
