Hello Schuyler,

     I lived anyway. Damn cold out there. I made it only to Catawba. A
couple of days of rain and snow made the camping rather miserable. I
probably would have stuck it out if I had some company, but I quit a day
early. The first 3 days were excellent. Tinker Mt and Cliffs were
outstanding. Sorry I didn't get to visit Blacksburg. I stayed in Salem. My
hitchike took me there from catawba.
