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!!
Goodnight !!!!

    Great to see you back out there. If Abbie continues to fall behind, she’ll just have to make it up walking at night to catch up.These are the rules!

    Great to hear you’ve laced up your hiking boots once again. The third times the charm.
