I am posting this week’s Weekly Winners pretty late in the day, but with good cause! I had an eventful week. Easter Sunday, the dogs were treated to outings in Hertford, North Carolina. Then on Wednesday, Ryan Somma and I embarked on a group backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail near Montebello, Virginia. We started at Punchbowl Mountain and 30.2 miles and three days later we were taking in the views on Spy Rock! Enjoy!

    Man, I’m jealous. I haven’t made it out backpacking, or even car-camping this year yet!
