Good Rep For the Van Fleet Trail975 viewsMet this pleasant fellow while biking on the James A Van Fleet Trail of Florida. He filled us in on the history of the trail.

The trail is over 29 miles long and straight as it cold be. Great place to see wild life.

Good Directions772 viewsMet these folks just above Catheys Creek Falls and they were kind enough to give us a short cut to Bird Rock falls, Thanks. The dogs must have moved just as I snapped the camera.Jan 17, 2015

Charlie 877 viewsWe met Charlie on Little Stony Creek Trail accompanying his friend down a very cold trail.

After making sure we were no threat he assumed his watch atop the back pack. When his transportation knelled down Charlie took his post atop the back pack. No, he did this willingly of his own accord.

Coast Guard Brat!780 viewsOne of these fine folks we met up Little Stony Creek turned out to be a Coast Guard Brat.

Oh don't get upset, that is a term of endearment for offspring of members of the Coast Guard family.

As soon as I get first names they will become members of our crew.

SEMPER PARATUS!

Craftsman810 viewsMet this kind man near Dayton, TN. While having a hard time photographing Sandhilll Cranes he saw us and invited us onto his property.

He was such an interesting fellow I forgot to photograph the Cranes. Study this face and you will find a personality that is rare today.

He gave us the tour of his property, which includes a woodworking shop of beauty.

As soon as he contacts us we willl add him permanently to the web site and see if we can show off some of his craft.

Rock Island Panther_1200x900.jpg
Panther?456 viewsCould this possibly be a Rock Island State Park Panther?

Since being ordained a Tennessee citizen, way back in 1976 I have heard the stories about panthers that lurk in the mountains.

This was sighted right out our back door when we checked in at the park.

Should I have listened to Lou and not risked our life and limb by checking in after dark in a place where waterfalls emerge from cliffs, but have no visible river?

To find out, check under Planes, Trains and Odd things, Critters answer no. 2

Doug Hale387 viewsOn 6 June, 1944 Doug Hale stood up. He stood up when he drove his landing craft ashore, delivering young men who will never grow old.

He stated he bent over to release the "Dogs" that held the ramp and missed a bullet that struck right behind him

He hasn't quit, still maintains his half of Guest River Railtrail at Coeburn, Va.

DOUG HALE, STAND UP! Now Doug take a bow........and thanks Doug.

Jeremiah 409 viewsJeremiah was a Bullfrog, was a good friend of mine, never spoke a single word, but he had some mighty fine wine.....

Got to figure out who wrote that stupid song so I can give him credit, whether he wants it or not.

Don't really know about the wine but, you can visit Jeremiah at Evins Mill.

First Trip 394 viewsBJ made her first trip to the bottom of Linville Gorge. She sure was a great hiking pal.

Actually she had no trouble and we had energy to see the Plunge Pool.

If you are reasonably fit and visiting Western North Carolina, you should go down to the gorge. After the crowds go home and during the work week this is a wonderful place to sit in awe of what time and water has wrought.
