if anyone's interested, i put some pictures from my 2000 AT hike on my web page at: http://www.bayloafer.com

i just got the site online after a few false starts. it's very incomplete now, except for a forum and photo gallery. check it out!

Hey chief,
I went to take a look, but didn't see any pics :(

Does one have to login or register? Just was curious, thought that if I saw something Rock might enjoy seeing, with your permission of course, I'd print it out for him and send in the next package.

The site looks nice anyway. I like simple myself. ;)

hey again, i think i see why you didn't see photos. when you click "photo gallery" it takes you to a page that just lists categories. there is only one, just click on the biggest words on the page. gues i better put a button or something up there.

Hi Chief. I haven't fallen off any boats lately. I like your site, photos and bio. You are definately one of the cool people--Even thought I'm in PCT territory I'm still interested in your AT through hike. Good luck!

thanks, glad you liked it! dare i ask the origin of "BigSac"? you carry a big pack or are we talking trouble with long enough shorts?

Could always wear a Kilt :)

It has very little to do with my anatomy believed me, just ask my wife. I'm 6' and 200 lbs, and just normal "down there"; not that I've done a survey or anything. You see I have been using an REI Wonderland pack that I've had for years and it is a large old style pack similar to an old Kelty pack. One day on the trail someone passed me and said, "You have a big sack." The name kind of stuck--and also I am from Sacramento so it could be short for that too.

I really need to replace that old "sack" with something else and I'm very interested in the Gearskin the Sarge has been talking about. I have a Hennessy Hammock that I use now and he seemed to be pretty accurate in his assessment of that piece of equipment; so why not the pack? I thought the Sarge was crazy at first, but now I'm starting to come around to his way of thinking as far as hiking equipment. Come back Sarge--we need you!

I'm not sure about the kilt idea. I'm 3/4 Irish, but even my Grandfather from Ireland did't wear a kilt, that"s more of a Scottish thing. However, I do practice an old Irish custom going back thousands of years--drinking beer.

There are Irish tartans... most of the counties have their own.

Ive been looking into getting a Utilikilt (http://www.utilikilt.com) for hiking... not just for the dashing looks though :D theres quite a bit of practical reasons too.
