Folks, thanks to a VERY generous donation by an anonymous friend of Sgt Rock's joining with funding from the Benton MacKaye Trail Association, we now have new trail junction signs for the BMT thru the Slickrock Wilderness. In addition, the Partners of the Joyce Kilmer Slickrock Wilderness paid for the non-BMT signs in that area, as well as the Snowbird Backcountry Area. We start putting those signs up this week, and hope they will all be in place by the end of July.

I've enjoyed the old signage. I liked having to stand the post up and turning it to where it probably showed the direction. I liked consulting three different sources to confirm which way to go. In Vietnam I was able to call in a random chopper to show me which way to go....thus making this civilian hiking more challenging.

You think your life is hard? Try working with this crew!
Real hard to try to get these posts in the correct spots, but these are the new signs At Yellowhammer Gap, along Ike Branch and the Slickrock Creek Trail.58555856585758585859

the only place i got a bit confused was right before the hangover.it took me two or three trips back and forth a bit to make sure i was on the right trail.

either way, new signs are a welcome addition.

Hikerboy, I plan on putting the signs up in the Hangover area on the 17th & 18th. Check the Partners of the Joyce Kilmer Slickrock Wilderness Facebook Page for the details. I should have it posted tomorrow sometime.

Yah.

I used to get real confused just before hangovers, too.

But taking all those trips didn't work for me as well as it seems to have worked for you.

Prolly cuz I used blotter.

I find that if I stand there looking confused someone will tell me where to go. Just sayin.

I got my hair cut today. The barber said "I can't believe you're 68." He thought I looked older....especially around the "lost in the woods" facial expression.

....and that's without doing drugs. Can you imagine how I'd be if I did drugs? Oh....I guess you could....never mind.

I got a ride to town one time and the guy asked me who died. I'm guessing my deodorant had failed. I said...damn, that could be me. We laughed and laughed.

You did look confused at times.

So, proof that you've been misrepresenting your age. We've been on to you a long time now oldtimer!

"if I stand there looking confused someone will tell me where to go."
That's called being married. My wife tells me where to go all the time.
Sometimes she even means it kindly.
