Captain Blue here. I thru hiked the Buckeye Trail in 2011. It was a wonderful hike. I created this group to promote the Buckeye Trail to all Ohio hikers. I am a Buckeye Trail Association board member and the Troy Section Supervisor.
Andy, will this hike be pet friendly?
If it is the same Niekamps, they used to call me Horse Feathers. My Mom is from a Rindler (Burtke) from Coldwater and her sister lived in St. Henry about a block or two from the Niekamps. I loved visiting them.
Hey Andy, Do you have relatives from St. Henry, OH? I knew some Neikamps from there and think they may be shirttail cousins.
These are not backpacking tents. They would be good for car camping. One tent is a 6 person tent and the other a 4 person tent. Unless you have a pack mule these would be hard to pack....lol
Wow. You hiked the WHOLE Trail??? I have been researching it and I can say...there are parts of it that look pretty challenging. I have been trail running but I recently got into hiking so I am kind of a newbie. Ohio has some great places to explore.
Tire Clean up Update - Dragons tickets
Andy, As a thank you to our group for cleaning up all those tires, Montgomery County Solid Waste has sent me 10 Dragons tickets for Saturday, July 7 at 7:00 p.m. Actual seats and not just the grassy area. I am contacting everyone who came to the cleanup. Those who contact me first will get tickets until they run out. If you do want one or a pair, I will mail them to you. Would like any? Lindy McDonough
