Anyway, this has been a great section. I'll take the next couple of days to fill in some of the details for those who are interested.
I was hoping to be out on the Trail for another week but I am taking my own advice. Many of you have heard me say this over and over again: Listen to your body!
And my legs are saying, "That is far enough...."
The good news is; I didn't pull anything this time out. I did occasionally feel some cramping coming on, but after stopping, resting (and massaging!) I could continue on.
I have found that I actually enjoy hiking in the rain. There is something mesmerizing about it, but the slipping/sliding is not good for the leg. So it was careful baby steps and a very short walk on that rainy day.
The next day was a little slippery to start but improved as the sun came up and dried things out.
Realistically, I could have done another day (or maybe two) but not much more... When the opportunity for a ride came up-- I took it.
Speaking of opportunities, I have been presented with a business opportunity which I will post as soon as the details are worked out and it's a "done deal."
So, check back over the next few days to read about some Trail Flavor. We'll probably start with the basics. Topics like: "Following the White Blaze," "Trail Angels" and "Tools of the Trade."
I will be spending the rest of the day unpacking, doing laundry and taking about ten showers.
Peace and Love,
