Not sure how long I’ll do this… but I would like to start hiking again.

Yes, currently there is no way to contact me. When I last used a contact page on another web site, I got nothing but spammers.

Sometimes I will vent my exasperations at lack of info. I’ll then have a nice nap, and move on with my life.

I am thinking about posting my camping trips from years ago. The camping story about the pancakes took place in Maryland about 1961-62.

I bought a book, ‘Explorer’s Guides: 50 Hikes in Alabama’, has info on hikes, but I haven’t used it yet as a guide. Some of the maps are small and/or blurry. A good read, has details of trails.

I designed this site by myself, without any help from the 1-99seo.com site.

December, 2016

Dec 14

Added two photos of my new Six Dimensions Scout Tent. I have set it up once, very easily done, check youtube for videos, and it fits my over 6 feet tall frame just fine.

November

Nov 15

Added sketch maps of the area, and interior, or Cheaha State Park, Alabama.

September

Sep 3

Adding some Adam’s Gap photos and a small section of the south bound trail. Done. Adding some photos of the Pinhoti Trail just south of the Cheaha Trail head.

July

July 5

Fixed picture links for Cheaha State Park, Campground 2.

June

June 28

Working on adding tags.

May

May 20

Added 3 photos I took of the 2016 Cheaha Challenge.

I have been told a new map of Cheaha State Park, more accurate than the current sketch maps, is being made.

I bought a WeightWatcher’s pedometer. It zeros out at midnight, so I have to write my distance down before then. But it will never rely on uploading to my computers, no firewall update concerns.

Apr 8

Been on second hike. Handled it better than the first one. Walked further as well. Both on Cave Creek Trail just south of Cheaha SP in Alabama.

One problem: distance covered and sources.

NF/Geodeitic Survey Topo map sidebar says 3.5 miles one way. Trail signs say 3 miles one way. My fitbit flex says 2.65 miles one way. Sketch map from Cheaha store says 3 miles. A listing of hikes from the same store, both of these are free, says ‘about 3 miles’. So, I have no idea how far I’ve walked the second time. I’ll just say 5.3 miles total.

But it doesn’t look like I’ll be doing the Benton MacKaye Trail this year after all.

Apr 6

Added the photos I took of a partial hike of the Cave Creek Trail just south of Cheaha SP.

And added this article so you weill know what is new here. Updated the site menus.

Previously to this date:

Nice price at $125 and $25 shipping. I already had a ground cloth and tent pegs so I didn’t get those. I decided to waterproof it myself. Hopefully I did a good job. The rain floy goes all the way down and is part of the tent. So it wopnt let in rain as I put it up, unlike the two dome tents I have.

The pointed end, tjhe wider end, is where your head goes. There are zippered fly and tent openings on both sides.

I have never seen the puppet theater shown on the map. There is a tree right where it is drawn next to the tower. The same with some of the event areas marked.

The road making the loop is one way, but be careful as some folks ignore the one way. Accidents can happen.

A sketch map of the state park. The tower photo on upper right is the Civilian Conservation Corps built tower. There is a museum in the building attached to it.

This sketch map shows the roads and camping within the park. This isn’t to scale.

Don’t forget the burn ban for this area due to the drought. Take plenty of water with you to.
