5/17/2016 – 8 Miles
Hello everyone!!! Back on the trail. It’s a always tough starting out again. This time I’ll have awesome company with me, Abbie wanted to live the dream for 150 miles.
We had a great night at the Bear Mountain Inn getting ready… my pack weight was 30 lbs when we left Fort Worth, somehow it now weighs 40 lbs… and I found items I’m sure I didn’t pack or need… hmmmmm !
Today we did approx 8 miles total. The trail goes right through a zoo in Fort Montgomery, nice way to start! We averaged 1 mph and I’m sure I heard some muttering of bad words. lol…. Abbie only used 2 muscle relaxers. She hung in there… she did think I’m nuts to hike 2200 miles! Maybe I am. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring or if it will involve a cab to the airport, but I’m going to pretend 10 miles is in our future!!! One day at a time and tiny tiny baby steps!!
