Were you south of 30 or north. I'll be south of 30 this coming weekend 18-20. I guess I can leave the microspikes at home??

These mild winters are making for terrible conditions.  Local trails are so soft it looks like someone's been driving heavy equipment on them.

Spent a few hours fishing yesterday in the misty weather we had here in the DC area. Felt like spring, but the water was still cold enough to use a winter set up.

He was supposed to hike a section of the AT with me. But the Flu bug is eating away at me currently.

So I had to bail.  :angry:
