Thanks for the post Dee. Yeah hiking and heavy weight not always a fun thing lol. My plan is to hike the Pacific Coast Trail 2 or 3 years after the surgery but I am starting my planning for it now. Might seem a bit in advance but there is so much to plan for and such. The PNW is a great area once you get away from the politics and some of the people but I'm sure that can be said about any area. The outdoors here is hard to match we have a little bit of just about everything. Good luck with your up coming surgery and keep me posted. Maybe next time you come up we might be skinnier and can do a hike and enjoy it. 2123 days ago

Born today (March 25), you are never afraid to go exploring in areas that others might find daunting or, even worse, simply forbidding for one reason or another -- and it’s not that you are impervious to fear, but rather you know how to control and channel your fear so that it becomes useful to you in a productive, creative, progressive fashion. Firm in your belief that moving forward can prevent or alleviate whatever ails you, you will strive to maintain momentum at all times, even when faced with extraordinary dangers.
You have a certain sense of style that is not likely to be equaled by anyone else born under your sign -- nor is it likely to be successfully imitated, for it is unique to you and often expresses itself in ways that are unusual in the extreme.
Today’s Aries Horoscope: You may not share another’s point of view, but you can surely work with him or her to strike a deal that benefits many others.
