Wrench Reports - Snarl's Heavy Breather

Wrench Report - Installing Cruise Control:
Come on out to the barn and fish a cold one outta the bottom. Picked up a Cruise Control Kit for 2004 FLHT/C/CI (p/n 77196-04) yesterday. Planned to install it the next day, but figured I'd saunter out to the barn just to, you know, check out all that's inv...

My Bug Suit
Back when I was first planning my AT hike, I outlined my completely rational fear of Ixodes scapularis - aka the Deer Tick, aka the Black Legged Tick - The most common vector for Lyme disease. I had explored various strategies to avoid having those nasty hi...

Slackdown at Jim and Molly's!

Next week I'll start the final leg of my Appalachian Trail section hike. I'm meeting Blue Jay in upstate New York, and we'll drive up to the trail crossing near Manchester, VT where I got off in 2012. From there we'll hike south to the Connecticut border where we'll likely part company.

Virginia Is Not Flat!
I had two goals for this summer. To complete my hike of the Appalachian Trail in one, long-assed section. From where I got off last summer, to where I got off in Vt back in 2012. And to do it without injury. Phfffpt! I ended my hike last year where the Jame...
