Arrival Story: Wanting to find a companion for my old dog, Smiley,I logged onto Petfinder and did a search for golden retrievers or golden mixes. I located Wesley at the Lehigh County Humane Society in Allentown,PA. Wesley may have a bit of husky in him as he has a curved tail and a bit of an independent mindset!
Bio: I like camping,hiking,and rafting. My Dad and I enjoy overnite trips along the Appalachian Trail,we`ve done hikes in PA,NJ,and the Shenandoah`s in VA. We have also taken trips out west and hiked in the Grand Canyon,Death Valley,and Yosemite. We have even done a trip to Alaska together back in 2008 and hope to go there again in 2013. I also enjoy rafting on the Delaware river. More videos are here youtube More Wesley photos are on webshots My photos on webshotsMy Facebook page
Woofs to all my Dogster buddies!
Dad and I have been on our fall trip for about a week now. We left Phila last Sun Sept 14 and spent the first week of our trip down in Florida where my German Shepherd cousin Julie lives. Dad and I paddled down both the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers and did a few day hikes there as well. We are now headed west to the Grand Canyon and will post when we can as our internet access while on the road is limited. We are currently staying the night with Flicka and Lucas` mom,Pam,here in Oklahoma. Dad and I enjoyed visiting with them very much!
Dad and I have been away for a little bit recently. We haven`t been to the Delaware Water Gap in almost 2 yrs so he felt that another backpacking trip was in order here. We spent 6 days hiking the Appalachian Trail and numerous side trails on the NJ side of the Gap. Dad found a few new geocaches,swam in a few lakes,and even put me in a canoe! It was fun and save for just a little rain,the weather was nice! Some pix with descriptions follow.
Leaving Florida we headed north to North Carolina`s Outer Banks. We had stayed down in Florida for an extra week to wait out Hurricane Arthur which made landfall a week earlier in the Outer Banks. We took the ferry to Ocracoke Island in the Outer Banks and spent several days walking the beach on Ocracoke and nearby Hatteras island. We also did some rafting in Pamlico Sound. This was the last activity of our spring-summer trip. It was one fun trip! Some last pix with descriptions follow.
