Thanks! I have the day off tomorrow so I'm planning a hike with the dogs (my husband is out of town). I've got to live up to this team.

I live in Southern California but to tell the truth, I hike all over the place - of course, most of the time I hike locally here in Orange County and I'm very lucky to have many, many trails near enough to get out frequently. I'm a volunteer with the Irvine Ranch Conservancy, Laguna Canyon Foundation and Sierra Club so I try to hike several times a week, usually going at least 3.5 miles or more. Today we hiked about 10 miles plus a couple more miles for dog-walking but most of my hikes are shorter.

My vacations almost always include hiking plans - fortunately, my husband enjoys it, too, so in the past year, 2012 we've hiked in Hawaii, Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and all over California - in 2013 we're planning to hike in Europe next fall, along with the usual 'wherever we can go' plans

Hi and welcome to the team! You are doing great! Currently I'm doing about 7 to 8 mile hikes, and building up from there again. I live in southern New Mexico and have a whole lot of hiking places around here, from mountains to high desert. So in the winter I can go down to some of the more desert areas not far from me and in the spring and fall up into the mountains north of me. I don't handle heat well at all, my body just doesn't regulate it right, so summer is hard for me to get out and hike. But I absolutely love being out in nature!

Thanks for the welcome. Your dog can visit anytime! My 3 would love it--they are min pins but they can walk 15 miles easily and even went up some of the peaks in the Adirondacks. Where do you hike?

Only a true hiker would describe 5 miles as 'not very far'!!

So I can assure you, this is the right place for you - emoticon to our team! I'm impressed with your strategy for getting back into shape - I bet your dogs love it, too! I know at least one of my dogs would love to come for a visit, haha! Please keep us posted on your progress and let us know about your hikes - I'm looking forward to getting to know you better!

Happy trails! emoticon

I hiked in the Blue Ridge Mountains all my life until gaining a lot of weight in the past 10 years--now I can't walk very far--usually five miles is it. My husband and I built trails on the woods through our property and walk the dogs daily--2.5 miles. We love hiking outdoors. Hi to everybody!
