    Aye. I love the Rockies, but the Appalachians will always be "my mountains".

    Except my van didn't much like them. The Blue Ridge Parkway just about wrecked its geometry.
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Many of the areas of the Appalachians only get repeat custormers, which is alright with me. The only people that go there are locals and people that really care about the outdoors. For instance, if you've never been to Buck's Pocket or Sipsey Wilderness in Alabama, or Cloudland Canyon in Georgia, you should consider them.

    It's not available on Netflix streaming or DVD anymore (the freaking b******s), but I highly recommend the Okee Dokee Brothers video of a trip on the Appalachian Trail called "Through the Woods". It's bit-and-pieced on YouTube, so you can get a flavor for it. It's actually the second film they did after "Can You Canoe?", a partial trip down the Mississippi from near the source.

    I may actually buy the DVDs for Christmas presents (even for myself) since I just discovered I can't access them through netflix anymore.
