I'll be out of the office today and Thursday, hiking some of the Twin Creeks Backpacking Trail with my dude Tom Helbig of Five Rivers Outdoors. He and his awesome colleagues in the Dayton metro area have put together a bunch of great adventure trails for the more daring park-goers in Western Ohio.

The latest project is the backpacking trail. In all, you could put together a 22-mile loop that seems perfect to hike over three days and two nights. (It might take longer, depending on terrain, so I'll let you know when I get back.) I'm doing about 10 miles of hiking in the Germantown Metro Park, as well as some fishing and camping out overnight.
