This weekend I spent at Hungry Mother State Park, in western Virginia. While there some friends of mine and I went and did an out-and-back dayhike along a section of the AT near Mount Rogers. We saw the famous wild ponies, and had lunch at the Thomas Knob Shelter. It was a short hike, about 6.5 miles total.

The next day we hiked to the top of Molly's Knob. About 1.5 miles each way, for another out-and-back hike.

Future plans:
My roommate has a conference in early March at Amicalola Falls State Park in Georgia. I think I am going to hitch a ride and then do a simple two-day up-and-back along the 8.5 mile approach trail to Springer Mountain. Nice 17 miles in two days.

Later in March I am going to do the Georgia section of the Benton MacKaye Trail. It is about 92 miles from Springer Mountain to the US Hwy 64 crossing. Should be a nice week out on the trail.

More information about the BMT:Ahh, the sweet freedom of unemployment...
A lot of you probably noticed I have not been around nearly as much the past month or so.

I am glad to say that I have successfully moved to Athens, Georgia. Since I was going to move again in just a month or so, we decided not to pay for Internet access. I am proud to say that I have moved again (about four or five blocks this time), and Charter should be coming out on Thursday to turn on our cable and Internet.

In the on-going PeachMac saga, I am proud to say that I am fulltime with the Apple Specialist. The next step is to get Apple Certified Technical Coordinator (ACTC) certification. Things at work are going well, although my schedule could use some tweaking (I am too old for 10 hour days, and working weekends bites).

I will let everyone know my new mailing address as soon as I can access the mailbox.
So in May I will be relocating to Athens, Georgia. I will write a more detailed entry on this at a later time.

In the meantime, though, I am also looking for a job in the Athens area. I will still most likely still be vehicle-less, so any position really actually needs to be in the Athens area. My experience is very diverse, obviously, so I am willing to hear about just about any job.

[Note: In a few months I will be celebrating three years without a vehicle. Woohoo! I admit that I do plan on getting a bicycle when I get to Athens, however.]
