Monadnock is no Mt. Washington (in the White Mountains) or Katahdin (in Maine) but it is a pretty good challenge and I'm thinking if the leg can handle this, then I can handle some of the flatter sections of the AT.
Also, I got to hike with the gear. I went from mini waist pack to "day backpack," to hiking with the big pack with about 30 pounds of gear. So far, so good. Today I went back to the mini waist pack to hike Monadnock. And I'm glad I did. It was very slippery from the rain yesterday and I got to see first hand why the campground is closed. The trees were down everywhere. It looked like a tornado went through. It was a bit of an obstacle course. But I managed, just fine.
So, here's the new plan...
I will be staying in town this week Monday through Friday. Then I will be going to CT on Sunday (I figure I might as well hang out with Mom for Mother's Day since I'm here.) Then early next week-- I start logging some miles on the Appalachian Trail.
That means that this week (Monday through Friday) I will be available to do massage. So feel free to spread the word. But schedule your own appointment first as times will fill in quickly!
To schedule an appointment, please call me at (617) 543-0482 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org . Please do not try to schedule your appointment on this website by making a comment.
So finally, about six weeks later than planned, I will be out on the Appalachian Trail for the first real section. Then it will be official.
Peace and Love,
