Happiness and contentment in life come from the merging of Opportunity and Talent. My Dad had Talent but no Opportunity so could not find a way to learn to play the Violin. I had Opportunity but no Talent -- I lack the physical ability to complete a Thru Hike of the Appalachian Trail. I failed to learn this lesson even after numerous section hikes, but in the Spring of 2013, after 41.6 miles hiking in MD and PA, I learned the lesson that Dad had in mind when he told me to "hike the Trail." This Blog is now about the Merging of Opportunity and Talent more than it is about hiking the Appalachian Trail, but I still plan to include snippets of the Trail in the Blog. It's about Chasing the Trail of Life. I hope you enjoy my posts.

This Blog is Dedicated to my Dad. Although he never accomplished his dream of learning to play the Violin, he did construct and play a Dulcimer at an Elderhostel.

Coosa Converts

This is my new Hennessy Hammock Backpacker Asym.  Found the "sweet spot" and slept well. 

I can't believe I converted from Bivy to Hammock!

I'm at Big Meadows Campground on Skyline Drive. Tonight I'm eating at the Lodge --- wanted a steak, ended up with Roosevelt's Fried Chicken dinner. If you don't know the story of how he reniged on the Government promise (both President Coolidge and President Hoover decreed it in writing!) to allow the residents of the Shenandoah National Park to remain on their land --- read up on it! Broke my heart --- 450 (or more) families had the property they bought and paid for stolen from them by the Government of Franklin Delano Roosevelt!  The Federal Government thanked them for their "sacrifice" --- that's what they call it when they victimize citizens I guess. 

PS -- Spotswood Dining Lodge --- 2 or 3 stars --- burned chicken and cold sweet potato fries.
