Walk In the Woods

I spent most of today reading A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson.

Every time I read it, I laugh out loud - and develop an overwhelming urge to get out and hike the AT.

Of course, according to Bryson, Pennsylvania is the absolute worst place to hike on the AT. Meanwhile, Virginia - Roanoke, Harper's Ferry, Shenandoah, Front Royal - is the best place. Living in Blacksburg for 5 years, I was happily familiar with much of this territory, and am suddenly eager to hike it.

This time of year would be especially beautiful.

I have the time, I'm fit and healthy, I have all the equipment sitting in my garage, ready to go.

What I lack is a second adult to make the trip with me.

I wonder if Katz is available....
