Well another day without my trusty Vista’ loaded computer. If I knew anything about MAC I might go that way. But since I am a little gun shy now I will just get the hard drive replaced. I hope it is all covered under warrantee. It is less than a year old. I am definitely going to research the best way to back up the files. Funny some of the files were backed up on the same computer as they recommended. Both the biggie and the backup are gone.
What do you usually do about files?
Enough of that sad sack stuff.
People on the trail. Since we have been hiking we have met so many very interesting people. Really only one grouch and one bore, our of all the great folks on the trail. We have met folks from S. Africa, England, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. One year there was a race that was prominent. One guy from Germany (The Flying Dutchman) and one from France (The flying Frenchman) We never met them but read their entries in some of the Shelter logs. The German guy was friendly BUT the Crap head ‘Flying Frenchman’ was always finding fault with the USA. His entries ended with, “God Bless, except America, She does not deserve it.” I was so frustrated like most Hikers at the arrogance. I wanted once to tell him, if it had not been for Americans and others like us, he would be speaking German now.
One little lady (in her 20’s) was called Penguin. She was from South Africa and was finishing a Thru hike when we first met her. Later we were camping on Blood mountain (Georgia) and here she comes with her boyfriend. She was just hiking a few mountains with him to show him some highlights. She was so full of energy.
There was a little lady called ‘Pig Pen’. Her family had met her at one shelter to surprise her with a Birthday party, complete with cake. That was neat.
Thanks for coming by the log.
What do you have around you house you need to throw away, but just cannot?
I have these old scratch CD’s. I plan to make birds out of them one day to hang from the awning.
