2015 Epic Trek With Tim Weekend

Recommended Posts

Could one of the lucky participants in last weekend's festivities summarize them so that we unfortunates who were unable to attend might revel vicariously in your good fortune?

Transylvania......

 

I think some of the group (at least our fearless leader, Perry) is still on the road heading home to Oklahoma.  I'm sure once everyone is home, unpacked, and rested, there will be a field report or two.  (I'm looking forward to them, too!  :))

P.S.  I already have my reservation in for the Epic Trip with Tim at Shiloh next year!  (Hopefully, life doesn't get in the way, this time.)

Well stated,Trans.  I'm fortunate in that I have Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Harper's Ferry and Gettysburg, etc. nearby to keep me happy in the meantime!    :)

Ms Belle, you bring back happy memories of five years in Lynchburg.  I might not have been quite as close to those fields as you, but I was not too far away. With my present location, I am a mere three hours or less from Sharpsburg and Harper's Ferry and a little more time from Gettysburg.  I haven't been to Gettysburg in over fifteen years and even longer for Sharpsburg. It's been two months since I was last at Harper's Ferry but it was a rainy Saturday.

 

Perhaps, I do need to get out to these nearer fields....

You might want to visit the Shiloh Discussion Group Facebook page.  Tony posted the Part 1 video of the hike there today.

Saturday morning near Shaw's, when my feet still felt sorta-kinda normal:

Hey, how'd they get so far ahead?!

The group . . . before some people defected. ;)

Then Tim shooed us all out of the way . . .

Thanks for providing a few 'teasers,' while we await the after-action report (and video?)   ;)

Ozzy, Tony has posted 2 videos of the walk on Youtube, Artillery at Shiloh with Tim Smith, parts 1 and 2. He also posted it to SDG site on Facebook. I'm watching part 1 right now. Tim's walks seemed to be great from the front room, on a 60" TV, with a hot cup of coffee. Thanks Tony!

Thanks for the pics, Michele, and the captions too. :)

There were no defections, however. Some people simply took a slightly different route. :)

I'll see about posting a link to Tony's videos here on the board, as I'm sure he'd be okay with that.
