Welcome! I hope you brought a compass, machete, and some fresh water because you are in the thicket and there is no telling how long you’ll be here.

The Thicket is a place to find stories, adventures, experiences, and observations of the world at large. Expect lots of articles, pictures, and videos, all centered around a passion for wilderness.

Glade Mountain (4095′) hosts the Appalachian Trail, seen here several miles north by the same trail and a few miles as the crow flies from my permanent base camp.

This site is curated by your humble host, JM Caudill. I am a writer, musician, hiker, occasional photographer and (amateur) bonsai artist living in Southwest Virginia.

The Thicket includes multimedia galleries of my adventures as well a section devoted to my fiction and my professional portfolio.
