On the road again..

I don't have any immediate updates from our hikers, but they are on the trail again, rest assured.

I spent Friday driving them up into Massachussets, just south of Mt. Greylock (near Pittsfield). We got out there around 12:30, had lunch, and at 1:30, I got in the car to head home, and they shouldered their packs and let their feet carry them off toward the mountains.

For the record, neither of them were looking forward to their first day with packs after 2 weeks of slacking - especially since that day promised a whole lot of walking UP the side of Greylock.

  2. Boy- you guys are doing great! I really enjoy checking on your progress. The snake story was a little scary but i'm glad it was just a close call.

  4. Erin,
    Hope Mike gets the cards I sent c/o you. I know this last part of the hike will be a real challenge for them.I enjoy my amenities too much, so I really admire anyone who steps outside their comfort zone. LOL! What an accomplishment!
