My hiking buddy

Saturday, September 14, 2013

My husband John is my hiking buddy. from the start of our relationship, we hike everywhere together. Usually, he picks the spot. He is the map man, and knows the logistics of the trips that we are considering.

John lets me set the pace. I start out fast, and five or six miles later, I get a bit pokey, but he never complains. We go to the most beautiful spots to eat our peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

Today we will go out, and find a new adventure. We will boldly go where we have never gone before!

This hike took us to the famous Pumpelley Cave on Mt. Monadnock. Yep. Life is good with my hiking buddy John!

    Good for you to have a husband who loves to hike. My DH does not want to hike, but he always goes with me and waits at the trailhead where he reads and talks to other people. Once I'm back then we enjoy our picnic which he prepares.

    My husband is also my walking buddy. Our standard fare is spicy grilled chicken drumsticks, a 2 cup green salad (no dressing) and a bread roll. We also love exploring in our dry months. We are blended having soul mates and walking buddies.

    You are so lucky you husband likes to hike, mine does not. Though If I "nag" he will go on small ones with me. I found a co-worker that wants to hike with me! I'm going to start to show off my beautiful area, like you show off yours.

    You are so lucky to live near such beautiful mountains!! Down here in PA we would have to drive almost 3 hours to do any hiking. Have a wonderful day exploring new places!!
