Tears came into my eyes at the shot of the Mt. Zirkel Wilderness (top of Mt. Ethel). I grew up packing through the area every summer with my parents. I last was there in 1987. I gotta go back at least once more!

Mags says "Any person who hikes the long trails is asked “Why go?” "

I say, "If you have to ask, you will not understand the answer.".

How do you protect your camera? A waterproof case?

Ron: I think you, Andy and myself are the only RIers to leave the state. ;) (Well, Andy has honorary status..his grandparents are in my home town! :D)

Camera: A ziplock bag Seems appropriate based on the rest of the gear. ;)

Very inspirational Paul, good for you. My grandparents are from Ireland, so when people ask me why I hike, I tell them this Irish saying, "Your feet will take you to where your heart is." My heart is on the trail. Obviously yours is too. Slainte.

Mags--seeing that photo of you getting out of your tarp made me laugh. Definitely not the same clean shaven guy I saw at POD's and Disco's wedding!
