Let’s Do This!

On 2015 is coming to a close.  I would say I’m sad, but I’m not.  Too much has happened this past year.  My mom passed away and I ended up with uncertaintity around being diagnosed with cervical cancer.

On the bright side, my girl introduced me to a rockin’ Texas State Park, Caprock Canyons State Park, we got married (officially) in June, we got to spend time in Las Vegas (work trip), wine in central coast CA, and a day or so in CA.

So…2016.  What to do, what to do.

I’ve bought a new pair of hiking boots.  Vasque Breeze 2.0 GTX.  $170.00 at REI.  Men’s size 8 width Medium.

I hope to put them through their paces tomorrow and we’ll see if they can hold up or if they get returned.  I have weird feet.   The left foot is a size 9 and the right is a 9.5.  I also have bunions so width is important.  The boots I bought today at REI are Men’s.  They feel okay, but I can tell there’s a few hot spots but I’m going to be hopeful.  Luckily REI has a great return policy; so if tomorrow doesn’t work out, then I can at least return them and try again.

So, to kick off 2016, a friend posted this:  52 Hike Challenge.  They actually have two challenges;  one is the 52 (your choice) and the other is around adventrue (your hike has to meet certain adventures).  Since my wife will probably divorce me if I started doing a ton of traveling without her, I think I may shoot for the 52 Hike Challenge.

Anyone else interested in joining me?  Could be fun.  We could start our own mini-group and share our stories; both good and bad (the bad one make great stories around the beers anyways!).
