Are you ailin', Slim? Or just old age? (I didn't think it had been very long since you posted pics from the woods, but time does get away from me.)

I do not look forward to the day I can no longer walk in the woods.

Ain't ailin', just old and used up. Can't see, can't hear, and my legs no longer work properly because they have been on too many mountains. I made my last mountain trek about two years ago when we were, again, exploring the cinnabar mines in east Pike County. I fell, tore all the hide off my right elbow and had to actually crawl back up the mountain until I got to a place where I could walk. We were searching for a specific tunnel we were told about and after I fell I told my buddy to go on, I'd had enough for the day. I crawled up the mountain when he got back. In the meantime I laid there in the supine position saying "magic" words while waiting. This attached photo was taken from that position and will be my last mountain photo.


I do hope I can continue to take an occasional less difficult trek from time to time. I have since found there is a fine line between boredom and depression As my old cowboy Dad would often say; "Oh well, what the , that's just the way it is".

Oh, Fossil, this makes me sad. I hope you'll still go to places like the overlooks at Petit Jean and Mounts Magazine and Nebo, take a spin down Scenic Seven, and maybe dig in the dirt at the diamond and crystal mines. Let your C-D Arkansas buddies know what sounds good, and I am very sure that those who live closer would be more than glad to meet up with you and lend a hand.

I'd do it myself if I didn't live over 500 miles away. Really hate that distance more and more as time passes...

Sending very best wishes for improved mobility and energy for all, self included.

You may be old, but you're hardly used up. You have so much information to share, so many great stories and thought-provoking pics. You are a treasure to all of us Arkansas posters.

I'll second that emotion! You are not used up - your passion for Arkansas still comes through, and it comes through strong.
