Good morning! Hey Joe, have you ever heard of the Loyalsock Trail? It's out there north of and between Williamsport & Wilke-Barres.
Avatar 9:19am Joe McG:

@steveo: No, I haven't, but I really like the name of it.

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 is it a tough trail? My son is starting to work himself into shape to try the whole App Trail next year.
Avatar 9:25am Sem:

Not deep enough, this group.
  Swag For Life Member 9:26am Manana:

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 9:27am thatpatsmith:

What next? The Eight Foot Wonders cover How High the Moon?
Avatar 9:27am Joe McG:

@thatpatsmith: Good guess!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:30am steveo:

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.
  9:30am Blix:

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
  9:33am David in London:

We need some Unit 4+2 - surely one of the bedrocks of mathematically named groups...

I really like this Deidre and the Dark album.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:25am Krys O.:

  10:31am Bill W:

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."

YES!!!! Hollies rule.

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.
  10:47am prudy:

really dislike this song. trying not to "hate" unimportant things.
  10:47am paul:

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."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:48am Krys O.:

Rod's was a cover among many. The Persuaders did it first.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:49am Krys O.:

Thanks for the Cowboys International, Joe. Always good to hear 'em.
Avatar 10:49am Joe McG:

@Krys: 1981 was a big year for that song: 3 covers!

@David - in Birmingham UK she wouldn't be far from the Black Country of course, which would be appropriate. Lyric wouldn't scan right if it was Betty from Dudley...
  10:58am KP in DC:

How long was Paul McCartney in Ram Jam

@Kevin, we could cheat the lyric slightly, "way down in Wolverham…(ton)"
