One of my life-long goals has been a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail, and hopefully the summer after retirement ('18). But I will not try it if still over 200 (nor will Karen let me).

Just finished reading your blog and wanted to swing by and say welcome back!

We're here if you need any motivation.
You have a beautiful family by the way.

P.S. a few of us are trying to revive the hunting,fishing and outdoor lovers forum so if you have any suggestions on discussion topics or just want to stop in to say hi, it would be much appreciated.

Have a wonderful day!
