Yeah it's a native name that means "middle creek". We're planning to backpack there so I was wondering if the "locals" know about it. Seems like it's a well-kept secret :)

Steveo, you may have seen this but just in case, the trail is run by the Alpine Club of Williamsport. Good website. Who knew there were alps in PA?

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 9:30am

Hey good for your son, Phillipe. We don't have time for that :) The LT is pretty hilly, but we only have to do 8 miles a day or something.

Thanks Manana, haha. I have purchased the trail guide and map from the club; I will ask them about the
alps if i run into any of them.

I was thinking of that "numbers in rock" show that you did with a guest who wrote a book about it a couple of years ago. I wanted to re-visit in the archive. What was your guest author's name?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:32am
Phillippe Bastille:

Thank's Steveo, I will let him know about it. The son is pretty aimless in life right now, so I'm not sure he can stick to a trail lol

Apparently in the early '70s, Paul Simon was trying to explain to an African American worker at a concert venue who he was. After listing a slew of Simon & Garfunkel hits with no results, he said "I wrote Aretha's song Bridge Over Troubled Water."

Took a cassette copy of George Benson's "Breezing" w/ me on a cross-Canada five day railroad trip. Gabor doing the tune justice here...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:46am
Wendy del Formaggio:

Didn't The Weather Channel use "Breezin'" back in the late-90s (or something) when they displayed the forecast chart on tv? Maybe they still do, I just don't have television now.

really dislike this song. trying not to "hate" unimportant things.

When I first got a cassette player in my car, George Benson's "Breezin" and the Best of George Harrison were the first two I bought. And probably Elvis Costello's first or second "album."
