Did an overnight backpacking trip on Pine Mountain Trail in GA. Hiked 8 miles from the FDR State Park office to the Whiskey Still campground, then hiked back in the morning.

This beautiful creature is Nova, aka Super Nova, aka Nov the Destroyer, aka Marshmellow Sausage, aka Fluffy Shmello Face, aka Darcy. +S. Larimer and I adopted her from Atlanta Humane Society back in 2014.

Stacey is doing the 2016 Walk for the Animals with the Atlanta Humane Society next month. The homeless animals of ATL would really appreciate if you'd make a donation to the AHS to help them find homes with loving families, using Stacey's link:

We did the walk last year, it was fun. We walked. There were animals. Money was raised and animals that were homeless are no longer homeless.

Full disclosure: Stacey works at AHS and she's on the "AHS STAFF" team.

Squirrel stuck in the gutter downspout. The fun never stops at the Larimer homestead.

Squirrel was released unharmed. Then I found it back in there again this morning. With another one, a little one. The number of squirrels in my gutter is increasing exponentially. I'm expecting four tomorrow.

We had a visit from the friendly neighborhood hawk this morning. Chickens were not impressed.

I took Stacey to Asheville, NC for a surprise horseback riding trip for her birthday. It was pretty fun...

...until our horses ran into a yellowjacket nest. My horse got stung and reared up and tried to buck me off. I got stung 3 times in the face. I yelled "BEEEES!!! BEEEEEEEEES!!!!" while my horse freaked out. The guide screamed at me to get off the horse, so I did a very ungraceful backflip off the back of the horse into the mud. Stacey's horse also started going nuts, so she had to jump off too. She almost got trampled but managed to crawl out of the way just in time. Both of our horses took off running down the trail and it took the guides a half hour to find them. The ride back to the stable was uneventful.

Happy birthday, honey!

Tomorrow I'm riding my motorcycle from Atlanta, GA to Rochester, NY.

Difficulty level: No interstates, no motels, free campsites / boondocking only, just a hammock and no tent. It'll take 3-4 days to make the trip.

I took a practice run up to eastern Tennessee to test out some new gear. It was nice. I forgot how much I like primitive camping.
