Thanks for your help. I guess what I want to know is how to string a good loop together (what to look for, "follow this color blaze" or "turn left onto fire road and look on the left for the next ST section" type info) I'm trying to avoid spending too much time looking for trails or bringing my wife onto stuff that's waaaaay over her head.

I can't post to either of those pages as I am not a member and am waiting for membership to be approved.
