Mine was an adventure. I got tangled in trekking poles. Lesson learned. Never regret the past!

I've planned to go out three times this year (so far). Stuff keeps happening. I was planning to go to Damascus this weekend and go North, but Babycakes is in the hospital right now, waiting to see whether her appendix is coming out or if it's something else entirely. Better that I was here when it happened!

I did that once.... marathon-training on a woodland trail, rolled-and-crunched both ankles within 5 minutes of each other, could not walk,  crawled out (about a mile) and hitched a ride home. Luckily I was only a couple miles, not hundreds, from home. Missed a week of work. It sucked. Your saga sucked more :-)

Absa-freakin'-lutely. Fat-and-fit folks can sprain both ankles on the way down, see the sunset from above the tree line, sleep on the ground slightly below tree line, shivering like crazy, hobble through the hunnert mile, and ride a bus home with ankles the size of grapefruits.

Time of my life, boys and girls. :-)

Do not under estimate Katahdin.  Get in some kinda shape before you start.  Fat outta shape folks have fell on the way down and broke their leg.
