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

On April 23, 2019, I thought I turned off ‘image resize’ for this site, but its not happening. Images are scaled down.

Multiple sites out there linking to my images and placing them on their sites. Why not get your own photos and maps of the park ? Stop stealing mine. Thank you. ( Some of these site have nothing to do with hinking and camping. )

Yes, 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 others.

October, 2020

Oct 5 Added 3 pages of photos on Ozark Trails 6 sided Teepee tent my new tent purchase. Cost was $56.00 plus tax. I am used to 4 sided tents and this threw me off a bit but I figured it out.

September, 2020

Sep 4 Added info on 1300 to 1500 calorie MREs from MidwayUSA made by NEX OS. Note that MidwayUSA will send you emails about things you have no interest in. I selected Camping and Hiking. I got, until I found the opt out link, received emails on buying everything but hiking and camping gear. Sep 2 Added info on low sodium MREs I purchased from US MealKit Supply, they are made by SOPAKCO.

I bought some more MREs… low sodium was all I could find when I ordered them. No side dishes. The desert is one of these: crackers with jelly, a candy, or a toaster pastry.

I’ll be uploading future photos at full resolution, 2048 pixels wide, so they are easier to see.

Added photos for Mike Bosarge Memorial Dog Park

Photos of down trees in the Primitive campground

Leave no trace information

Updated my take on the SOPAKCO MREs

I have only been on two hikes in the park.

Some of the entrees were incorrect, but Sopackco is making up for it. Thanks !

Feb 18

My MRE order arrived. I have tried one of the entrees and a side dish. MRE and items tried so far

I camp nearer the pavillion now. I hate hiking uphill to go to the restroom.

Teepee photos

A series of photos of my newest tent, a six-sided teepee tent. It has lots of room.

I sprayed waterproofing on all of the outside of this tent. Dried for 24 hours and then it rained. There were leaks that I think were caused by the sides not being tight.

I will purchase more waterproofing before the next rain and see what happens then.

Reviews I saw on youtube mentioned that there are only two reinforced corners for the poles. I was able to locate them. I poles are along the outer wall corners, no center pole. i am over 6 feet tall, and I have plenty of headroom. The reviews say 7’ 2”. One of my relatives suggested the rain may have come in via the peak vents, if the wind was blowing hard enough for the water to go up the outside and into the vent.
