So, the adventures of Linus Cloudbuster a.k.a Stale Bagel a.k.a. Titanal has brought me to Fontana Dam, and the zombie Jesus has risen. So all is well, and all is not well. I have been withough my hiking partner Warhero for several days, he flew home in Franklin after bad news from the doctor. He is resting in NY, and hopefully will rejoin in 2 weeks. So, tomorrow is the start of the Smoky mountains. Me, K Bar, and Nature's Child are taking it easy at a nature's aunts for the night (in beautiful Tennessee). So 162.6 miles and two weeks later.... and it's been a blast. The last two days have been truly great for the spirit, like this was what I was meant to do, I love the mountains, the climb, the aches and pains, all of it.

So a few things that stick out in my mind:

  • I was unable to find any fucking real apple cider in the south, all hot water mix. I got some decent hard cider at the NOC.

  • Fuck stale bread, don't eat at the NOC restaurant, they vegan buger sucked (but at least they had one), and more stale bread. I might bake myself a loaf tonight

  • Oh, and my favorite Bill Cosby quote: "You can't say Fuck on tv".

Anyhow, rant off, I hope the weather improves. Today was beautiful. I have attached a photo of me and K-bar, that I pirated of her blog, because dummy forgot his usb cable. Rafting at the NOC was good, but we should have done that class 5 at the end. Life is to short.

107 Miles and Snow


So end of day 9 and we had 3 or so inches of snow. We got back to Franklin N.C., where we spent the weekend for a hiker bash, that was very unfriendly to anything other than a meat mouth. And currently I have to shit... how nice. I just ate a whole pizza by myself... I shall call it man mountain.

Anyhow, my hiking partner is having foot problems, so he is seeing a doctor in the morning. If not I might be on my own again. But overall things are going well, appetite is getting bigger. And I finished my last stale bagel from the Neel's gap outfitters, wherever you guys are.... fuck yourselves.

Here are some photos:

5 days and soggy feet

So I am in town, on a computer, and booked into a hotel. 67.5 miles down, too many more to go. The weather has been shitty, today it was nothing but fog and rain. My ankle hurts because we did a 18 or 19 mile day yesterday to give someone their food they left behind, only to find out they were heading the other direction. I have met some really cool people so far, and I have been hiking with Lucas Warhero for the last 3 days or so. There is a big hiker meet in Franklin, N.C. so we will be hitch hiking there tomorrow if all goes well. There is a huge storm coming in and it doesn't look like it is going to stop raining for the next few days.

Oh and that bastard outfitter at Neel's gap sold me some stale bagels, fucking bastards!

So thanks to Mother Nature (she really exists and is from Clarkesville, GA), here is the only pic I can provide at the moment of Linus Cloudbuster and Lucas Warhero.
