Thanks! Im super excited!
Well so far Im trying to hike as much as possible. Have been doing a lot of long hikes with a heavy day pack. Ive also been doing a walk around a golf course (its an easy trail) with my big pack on. Hopefully I will be able to start doing harder trails with the pack in a month or so. Im also working on some core strength yoga and will hopefully be getting a gym pass soon so i can do some strength training. My legs are pretty strong but my upper body isnt that great. Lol! Also trying to diet and stay within my cal ranges so I can shed a bit of this extra chunk I have on me, that will make it a bit easier too Im sure. :D

Where are you going on your trip? What are you doing to train for it? Yay hiking trips!! Lol!

As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can. ~John Muir

I will be hiking the cape scott trail on the northern tip of vancouver island. Its a part of the north coast trail, which is the more isolated, rugged and less known version of the famous west coast trail. :D Its going to take us a week and then we are spending a night in a cabin on day 8 as a bit of a treat. :D Im super stoked! My gear is pretty heavy, I dont have the funds to be ultra light, but we are taking the trail a bit slower than hardcore hikers so it should be manageable. Its super remote and not many people will be on it in June. Its also home to the coastal wolves, which are endemic to these islands. So kind of scary but also super awesome! Ive done one other major backpacking trip before, so this is going to be a challenge, but Ive been planning it since last summer so hopefully all goes well! Huge sandy beaches, sea caves and sea stacks and super rare sand dunes will be my eye candies!
