You all are AWESOME! Whoa!
Yes, I read the Thru Hiking Papers and I thank Jim & Ginny very much for
taking the time to put all that info together. It's where I first got an
inkling that maybe there's a little more to this than one foot in front of
the other. While I'm coming clean here I can tell you I know that I will
miss my dogs terribly, hopefully knowing that I can prepare and work that
head game so that missing my dogs doesn't finish my hike for me. I had not
really thought about that before. They are already in training for good
behavior at other family members homes, and they don't like it one bit!
I wonder how many of the people that quit in the first few weeks do so
because they aren't in shape at all. That's why I am working at this
conditioning thing, I don't want to be so miserable in the beginning that I
would rather quit than hike, but if I set off right now for Springer I can
tell you I would be miserable directly. I need these workouts. I'm trying
to reduce the breaking in period! I'm no young pup.
Frank, what's a bench hiker? Will they really give me beer?
And yes, the family stuff is already begun. They want some specific time
tables from me. Laughable, since I am clueless myself.
I so appreciate the way y'all approached this. Good insights. So Felix is
into fencing? Good to know.
