It Started With A Tickle

–Note: The following was written while on steroids, which I am sure everyone will see I don’t handle well (lol)– It started with a tickle, turned into swollen eyes and Jimmy Durante nose. What did? My FACE!!! I have never had an allergic reaction…

TIBS Is Off The Trail – An Update

Broken Foot & Recovery….or is it???? After three months in a walking cast, I was released to physical therapy. I want to remind everyone that patience is not one of my virtues. I thought six weeks and we are good to go. My foot…

Seven (7) Months Grey

I checked my date book to see when my last hair color appointment was, February 16, 2018 at 9:30am…….seven months without hair color.  I never thought I would make it, let alone this far.  I thought I might cave and get a touch-up or…

TIBS Is Off The Trail

Rocksylvania claims another victim, this time it’s Charlene.  Okay actually we were in New York almost in sight of Connecticut, but the ROCKS seem to go on and on and on…  Coming out of Fahnestock State Park Charlene’s right foot really started to give…

The Chronicles of T I B S – Day 68

The day started like any other for our band of intrepid adventurers as they packed up their gear and headed onward towards the NY/Conn border this overcast and breezy day. The scenery was amazing with yellow and white flowers on the Lilly Pads. Dad,…

Time And Mileage

My mind says I can do so much mileage in a certain amount of time. My body says to me, “kiss my ass”. Honestly, my mind made me try, but the body is not going along with that idea. The reality of the trail…

Port Clinton and Cabela’s

We took a 10 mile hike from Eagles Nest Shelter to Port Clinton, PA after discovering Cabela’s Will shuttle you in to Hamburg, Pa from the US Post Office (among other places) in Port Clinton. The trail was heavily mined with rocks and mud…

Back On The Trail

What started off as a quick exit for a pack repair turned into a two week hiatus as I got sick with some unknown 72 hour bug combined with a holiday weekend. The extra time allowed me to order in a Craighopper shirt imbedded…

Bob and Bobbie Ann

The hike to Carlisle was pretty straight forward with farmers fields, lowlands, and one small hill that just popped up outta nowhere. We passed a few highways, streets, and the PA Turnpike later we arrived at Hwy 11. Turn left, walk a short distance…

Boiling Springs, PA

Charlene is the queen of FB pages and over our travels has learned to hook up with the “spouses” pages on the various bases we have stayed at or near us. Knowing we were headed into Carlisle, PA she reached out to the spouses…

Trail Magic And A Hostel

The past couple weeks have been a mix of highs and lows, and I don’t just mean hills and valleys. One day we were walking near Antietam Shelter needing a break and Dad “Moses” gets waived over to a tarped lean-to by a couple…

First Re-Supply……

Let’s just say we spent way more than we should have and have more food than we could ever use. The Cobblestone Hotel In Waynesboro, PA’s hiker box just received some extra love from us (picture shows the extra). It was a lesson learned….
