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!).
