Awesome, thanks for letting us know.

SGT Rock, there were a few minor things I noticed this week. Your guide says there's a gate at the north end of the field at mile 130/156.8. If the gate is across the trail as you're entering the meadow, it's no longer there. Also, I didn't see a radio tower on Waucheesi summit, mile 135.5/151.3, but I may have missed it.

At 130/156.8 the gate isn't across the trail, it's over on the road. Waucheesi Summit radio tower can be seen here: https://www.google.com/maps/dir//35.2761516,-84.218122/@35.276135,-84.2183141,101m/data=!3m1!1e3?hl=en

HI, Traffic Jam! Sgt Rock is correct that you can, generally easily, see the tower, but it is not on the trail. As I recall, it is about a mile north on a connecting trail.

That's being held up by them trying to decide if the Florida section will still be part of the BMT when it floats down to Cuba.

Thank you! I'm not surprised I missed it. The leaf litter was so deep, especially on the summits, that I had to watch the trail closely so I didn't get off track.

Other than having to deal with Superman x 2, FB is not such a bad place.

I finally joined FB because I'm trying to put stuff out to our CVMA chapter and I'm finding that for many members it is the most efficient way to reach them.

I don't remember where all the blowdowns are but I remember having to crawl once, duck under quite a few, and go around several.

Hmmm. I don't like FB's lack of security. So no account there for me either.

...but you are an ass. ;)

Now you're sitting there pissed off. let's take a look at it. You're an intelligent, informed, reasonably successful man with people who love you. I'm not one of them....what I just said about you I could have said about many people that I've known that are long gone now. You say that quitting smoking is easy....but you won't do it. I had a friend that said he was quitting smoking and as he quit smoking cigarettes he smoked more whacky weed. Apparently smoking doesn't give a shit if whacky weed is all natural and "good" for you. If you want to stop being an ass you'd stop smoking anything and everything....what ever that might be. Your throat sounds like you are three cigarettes from the big "C." Oh wait...if you quit smoking you might gain some weight. So what...you could use some weight, skinny ass. Smoking anything isn't hip or cool...it's deadly and you can avoid the high risk by quitting smoking. With all the shit I've been exposed to it is as if I am talking to you from the grave. I won't mention it again.
