    I am waiting for another installment…, when you get some time! HUGS

  3. Katie, it was great meeting you on the trail. We enjoyed speaking with you. You have a great sense of humor. Thanks for all the tips on how to lighten our load and how to better prepare our foods. Good stuff! Be careful walking backwards!

      You two are a amazing! And it was so fun meeting you on the trail. I waited at Agua Dulce hoping we’d meet up again, but alas, it was not meant to be. 🙁 I hope you had an excellent walk down the aqueduct and I can’t wait to see you both again sometime!

  4. And by the way, how does one “follow” you. We don’t see how to automatically get updates.

    This is amazing and wonderful! What a truly remarkable experience. I’m enjoying your posts. You have the same adventurous spirit I remember from undergrad.

    Oh Babe — Your poor tootsies! Would you like “Arniflora, Arnica Gel” used for overexercised parts, like your sore, bruised, painful feet? It stores at room temperature out of the light. It is a natural Homeopathic substance. — Love Mom

  8. I want to hear more about he skunk! That little bastard!

    when do You begin again?

      Thanks, Todd! I’m so glad you’re enjoying them. Watching other hikers’ videos helped me prepare for my own hikes and also allowed me to live vicariously through them! My next BIG hike is planned to started around the beginning of June, but hopefully I’ll get some shorter hikes in before then. Thanks for following me!
