“my ride to the black forest bailed. either of you guys (or anyone else in the indiana/illinois/ohio region) wanna car-pool? i promise not to make fun of Da Bearsh too much”
“If ya fly to BWI, not DWI, I will pick your sorry ass up along with Roamie and Hutch.
I'll be driving a red and white jacked-up Torino.”
“what time and what airport?”
“Uh...............Bee Dubya Eye
Next Friday evening.

“when are you taking them back?”
“we're flying home on Wednesday the 28th. My flight is kinda late that day so I'm plannin on visiting Fort McHenry and the Inner Harbor.”
Wanna visit Poe's grave?”
Crash, I will get you back to Baltimore after the hike. I am driving Roam and DH down to MarkO's after the hike Tuesday night.”
"Bail" is such a strong word.....
A friend is doing an impromptu thru-hike and needs a lift down to GA next weekend. He asked that I take him down. I'm excited about it, but sad I'll be missing this hike.”
“im leaning towards driving, unless i find a great deal on airfare. by the time i drive to the airport, go thru security, fly 3 1/2 hours, get baggage, get out of the airport, and drive with marko from baltimore to the trailhead, i wont have saved more than an hour or two, and spent probably twice as much money. but i havent ruled out flying yet”
“What time Tuesday??
Perhaps we could have dinner at my shack...........depending on time.”
I am flying into Willimsport and renting a car from there. I am leaving from Indy Int.
See the Logitics of it all thread for my flight numbers, time ETC.....
See ya this weekened and bring your sealskins cuase the creeeks are up big time!! Yeeeeeeeh Haw!!!
See ya later
“marko, you have mail”
“Did you find the sealskins then Randall? Cool.”
“I may look for some sealskins.... however, if they water is over the top of them, they wouldn't do any good would they?”
“screwed by Doolittle???”
Just wait till I see you next, Mr.”
Bought them at Bass Pro in Gurnee (10 miutes from work)
I walked through several calf deep streams/ standing water and they did keep my feet dry, shoes got wet though,LOL !!
I tried Hefty steel sack trash bags and they kept everything dry, but would not withstand more than 3,4 crossings. I will use them this weekend as they are cheap if you only have to do that kinda thing a couple of times. They are very light as well!!
See ya later.

That would be correct if you give it too much time, water will seep in. Mine come up almost to my knees. j/k ;-)”
“is Ms. Doolittle not going?”
“nope - she chickened out.
“She is now officially MsScrewlittle”
“[big bird flipped at N_G]
I'd go for Roam as well, but I don't know him yet. ;)
Ah, what the hell.”
“I LOVE birds!!”
They fly your way an awful lot.”
“I keep them in my pockets.
Do you know what Snacky's deal is?

“Ya know, N_G. Rather than expressing yourself this way, why don't you just chuck it all aside and do your own thru hike? I'm going south next weekend. Be a dear and wrap everything up, I'll be in town on Saturday'ish (24th) to pick your ass up to drop it in GA. :P

“Yeah. I wrote him this morning.
Copy and paste section of e-mail from Snacky:
"I completely understand. It probably works out a little better for me anyhow.. I was trying to figure out how to make this trip as dirt cheap as possible because I have absolutely no $$$ to spend right now. So, this reduces my financial burden some. I probably would have had to spend around $150 or so for gas money."”
“Man, sending me to Georgia would be bad . . .”
“ have absolutely no $$$ to spend right now. So, this reduces my financial burden some
this must be like the yin and yang of the universe, because quite coincidentally, this increases my financial burden some.”
“how's it looking Crash Bang? I took a look online at airfare and didn't see anything promising.
Hope you can make it.”
“im going whether i drive or fly. right now, looks like drive. 250 smackers for ticket to baltimore. gas money to and fro would be probably half as much, and almost as quick”
“airlines stink - i think fares should get cheaper the closer to last minute that you get.”
“Yeah, eithe buy early or buy really late and you get the best deals. Of course it's getting pretty late???”
“i thought about going up to the airport and trying to fly standby. ive heard you can get good deals doing that. however, i dont know anything about it”
“i think diane should just cancel her flight and ride out with me
“mapquest says its a 9 1/4 hour drive. ive driven that far for weekenders a good number of times. i aint sweatin it”
“dude, it's at least 3 extra hours from my house. But ok, I'll trash my plane tickets and swap 3 hours on a plane for 12 on the road.
See ya there.”
drive safe - i once drove 18 hours for a weekend trip - South FL to Philly.”
“I drive 7-8 hours for trips alot..”
“where do you live, ens? i typically dont like to drive more than 6”
The longest I have driven for a trip was 10 hours up to Baxter State Park in Maine. The Smokies are a good 8 hours away and so are the Dacks and Whites.”
“i wish the trees were coming to this. its closer to them than ithaca is”
“I feel for you crash.
9 hours is not that big a drive really. For a long hike like this it's nuttin.”
I beg your pardon, monsieur!!!
Should that not be, DORK, Pennsylvania?”
“hell, i drove from kokomo (45 minutes north of indy) to the georgia AT on a friday night after work and returned on sunday evening, in order to orchestrate a hiker feed last year. thats about a 10 hour drive each way”
““I feel for you crash.
well, keep feeling around, cuz i dont feel you yet. maybe if you opened your eyes......”
