This is what my computer desktop looks like. That line of weather widgets going up the middle of the screen are basically the way of the Appalachian Trail. I thought it quite clever to use a screen shot of a map of the local area with the weather widgets placed in their (somewhat) proper place. I also include a few nearby places of interest to get a quick snapshot of what is happening weather wise around here.
I like to see what conditions are like on my obsession (The AT) at all times. This morning looks a mite cool.
At least a few times a day, I dream of getting back on the trail and just walking away. It obsesses me to no end. I'm always looking at other's gear lists and seeing what I can add to mine to make it lighter or better equipped. I read trail journals all the time, living vicariously through them until I can write my own entries.
I have several sections planned. All I need is the time off to do them.
