    Yeap , I wan away from home all wight..! I know of a whimsical place on Cather's Run , a little trout stream deep in the forest.! The place is like out of some fictional days of Lore , elves , fairies , the whole deal.! Too beautiful to put in words , but , I shall try.! There is a small water fall which forms a large deep pool . If not for the sound of falling water to betray it's presents , one would never know it's existence . Hidden by a grove of accident Hemlocks and Mountain Laurel , the getting to it is a bit obscure , a game trail more or less
    And quite invisible to the untrained eye.!
    Rather thick and hidden..! Sometimes crawling , sometimes climbing over laurel thickets..! Once through the thickets , it opens to a post card surreal landscape.!
    I can not find the words , like trying to describe the most beautiful woman your eyes have ever beheld.!

    The landscape tells of it's age and the extremes in weather trends it had been through.! Erosion , snows , floods , it's all there , it's biography..! You can actually read the water line , the scars it left on the defenselessness against the forces of nature and water.! In this one particular place , the water and it's never ending attack upon the earth left some unique geological features..!

    Now , I have not been to this place in some 25+ years or so , so the changes left me speechless..! The last time I'd been there , on the North Bank jutted a very large rock , the size of perhaps a five story building , 36,000 sq.ft..! This rock was so large , I'd set my camp on it's surface and dive into the pool from it.!
    A (HUMONGUS) rock..! Now , this rock has eroded and fallen into the stream now barely visible ..! WOW..!

    This paradise is a place I would go to when I didn't want to be bothered , too. Far in for trout fishermen to get out before dark , freedom , solitude , absolute nature at it's finest..! I have returned home to PM some very special and get more ammo , lots of ammo..! While. I'm home , I'll take a hot shower and eat something good...Hmmmm..? A cream filled doughnut..! I left everything there
    But. My firearms . I REALY doubt any one would find my camp , but won't leave any weapons lying about..!

    I will take some pics but no way can I capture the depth and beauty of such a place .! Don't know how long I'll be gone , as long as I feel like I guess..! :D
    You all take care and stay healthy and I'll chime in when I return.!

    I'll take you all with me..! See Yaa..! :D

    Well , I'm going to take a little nap , check back here , (FTF) and head back out
    So as to get there before dark..! Would not want to navigate that in the dark , it's tricky enough in the day light..!

    Hold the fort until my return and got good news . I've gained another. Six pounds and considering all things , I hurt but I should hurt . It's the price I pay for all the fun I had , so be it..! :D and it was fun really..!
    Now starts a whole new adventure , and a special Thanks to the main man GOD !which ever one you have faith in ..! I thank him for for all the interesting and beautiful people and the wonderful planet he gave me to play on..!

    10,000 + bonus points for women , (sigh) need I say more..? :D

    Got my own spot like that. On the Appalachian Trail. Real shy native trout- babies like to go after crumbs from lunch.

    Share that with my shooting buddy- ashley goofing 015.jpg

    Stay safe. Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky.

    I spent a few months , from Port Clinton Pa. Just across the Georgia border .it was hard at times to stay on the trail because ATV's . I even got removed by the
    Sheriffs department for "squatting" accidentally on private property , Eeeek.!

    Thanks for the pictures C3shooter , I just love that stuff..! Only one thing I like
    Better sometimes and that would be (Ladies)..! Again , one of the finer works of GOD..!:)

    I blew it .! I should a left when I said I was going to.! It'll have to be tomorrow.,!
    I started walking around the house and seeing her stuff all over the place . I'm not feeling so tough at the moment.! This has got to change , fix it or finish it.!
    I need closure or something.!

    How can one move on when things linger so.? I'm not handling it all the well either.! As hard as I try , it is extremely difficult to detach when everything is in limbo.! I could really use a drink or something right about now.

    To all that have this loss , I feel your pain and know how empty one can feel !
    Just lost and numb , Eeeeek.! So much for denial , down to reality , this is real .
    respect to all that have gone through this I'm sure you've come out a better stronger person and do know love..! It is a wonderful experience and worth the pain.!

    And so it begins , a new adventure and time to cast away some years of conditioning..! One step in front of the other ..! I!m willing to do whatever it takes to end this and we both need space and time to heal . There is a smile on my face and no anger , just a sense of loss..!

    Thanks for your patients , it really helps to get it off my shoulders , nothing to hide and no fingers to point blame , the way it should be.! :)

    You'll get through it all and look back in wonder on how quickly things can change,,, good or bad as it may seem. But as you say, you will be stronger and more resilient afterwards, it will always be there, but you are able to put things in order and perspective,,, hang in there chief.

    dango - Go to where your soul is revitalized. Sounds like you're visiting one of those spots now.

    When you return, set some goals to acheive and write them down, goals give us something to look forward to and to work towards.

    Take time to think about where you want your life to take you. Thinking is hard work, that is why so few actually do it.

    I know this is cheesy, but I also know that you're old enough to remember Lynn Anderson's song "I Never Promised You A Rose Garden." When times are tough, I sing that song to myself and just keep on keepin' on.

    God bless and God speed.

    I don't know what he's talking about either, but then again I was told my French is no good. Funny thing, I wasn't talking at the time...
