  1. Baby Steps

    So I woke up early this morning and looked outside, rained all night again but at least it let up for awhile. Had to get something from our storage place that super close to my house so i decided to walk. Threw on shorts and a hoodie and off i went.

My wife and I got some walking in yesterday at The House on the Rock here in Wisconsin, up and down stairs and walkways; it was like a short hike. But I was able to find a hard seven mile trail I hope to hike Tuesday in a place called Merrimak (the Ice age trail) if all ...
  5. Looking ahead to 2013

    Well I figured I may as well start a journal about my prepping for my thru-hike in march 2013. Planning on hiking with my bestiest buddy. Decided to do this last year after watching a documentary about it. Turned out that 2013 was the best time frame to do it since we both were going to be in a transition phase.
