As much as I enjoy backpacking and hiking adventures, I find that they soon become pointless unless you can share them with others.
20 to 30 miles is a good day hike. My longest hike in one day was 44 miles and I'd gladly do it again if I knew I had the next day to recover.
10 days and 90 some miles
Climbing mountains (well maybe that is hiking), picking huckleberries up in the mountains, swimming across lakes, fishing, camping of any kind and harvesting fruits out in a big orchard. I also like to run and road bike, but I'm not as intense about it.
Lets keep challenging ourselves.
Bonnie, I wish I could take off work this Thursday or Friday! I would have been on your Table Mtn. hike yesterday but my daughter was in town this weekend. When I went up by myself about 3 weeks ago, I made it as far as the Table Mtn. sign. There was snow then but if I hadn't been pressed for time, I would have tried to get to the top. That's why I couched the hike description as "semi-exploratory."
Look forward to meeting you on a future hike.
you are most welcome to join us, I will actually open RSVP till next Mon when our pre meeting will take place. Even if it was closed you could still be most welcome to join us. Hope to see ya at pre meeting.
