Yeah Rain stinks when your camping. Its so beautiful out there. Its good that walked around the park a bit. 2 miles is not what your used to but I think its better than nothing. The fact is you could have done nothing at all but you made the effort and I'm proud of you!

I have to remember to stop and think.

I can't believe you all walked 9 miles the other day - wow, that's awesome! By the time I got to Lost Bridge the rain had stopped and the humidity was terrible so I didn't do the trail. I walked around the park a little but didn't keep track. Probably about 2 miles total. It was so hot I just couldn't do it. And today, geez...rain really makes me cranky when you are camping. That's why I am home and they are all still there. I'm glad you all had a good time!

Carrie & I talked too that it wouldn't be an enjoyable hike this morning, so we called it off... we've sure been getting hit on Sunday mornings lately!

I don't care at all! Carrie's girls & my oldest did 9 miles today with us... they're pretty worn out! But my big guy said since she's coming, he'll join us as well. See you bright & early in the morning!

I'm planning on coming in the morning, I've even got my alarm set :), but would anyone object to my oldest daughter coming? She likes to hike and asked if she could come.

Wahooo! We did 9 miles! It was SUPER pretty out there, but the trails were washed & some of signs were gone so we did get a little lost.

We'll be at Lake Fayetteville @ 7:00 if anyone wants to join!

Final plans are in place for this weekend's hikes:

SATURDAY: meeting @ 9:30 am at Wal-Mart Optical on 6th Street just East of I-540, then caravan down to Devil's Den to Hike Vista Trail (8 miles) which should take 5 hours

SUNDAY: meeting @ 7:00 am at Lake Fayetteville, normal place (by Lewis & Clark) and hike the longest loop going across the dam first

Anyone wants to join us at the last minute.... there it is!

Would love to, but my son is running a 5k that morning and then I have an OM party to go to later that day.

Maybe next time though!

HIKING IS CANCELLED FOR SUNDAY AT DEVIL'S DEN... we're trying to reschedule it for Saturday... will update you on this turn of events as soon as I have more information.

However, I am up for doing Lake Fayetteville @ 7:00 on Sunday if anyone would like to join me there?

Jana, I'll start a new thread for the working question & suggestions - please post your ideas there for her!

Okay, one of these days this summer we are taking a new picture!! I look like a beached whale up there! I can't wait till a bunch of us can make it and get a new one done! I also can't wait till you are saying "Is that Jana or is that a tree limb?" LOL! Maybe next year, huh?

I sure will miss hiking with you all this weekend. I am going to find the one at Lost Bridge though, it's calling my name!

When in the world do you all find time to exercise when you work a full time job??? I started back to work this week and everyday I am struggling to get anything done beyond dinner, laundry and preparing for work the next day!?! I am thinking about exercising in the morning, but I don't know if I can handle that. And I guess I could at lunch but I hate to get all sweaty...I have to figure out a plan quick!

Vanessa, I could come pick the two of you up if you want me to so we can save on gas. Just let me know after you take to Gary about it. Van & Natalie & Carrie's kids all get along so good together!

I might be interested in going and bringing Nat. I'll have to make sure Gary is willing and able to watch the other 2(he might have to go out of town) but a hike sounds fun! Not sure about the 15-mile one though...lol

Sounds good to me. I'll ask Ike if he wants to go, Van is a no-brainer... he love nature. Ron is definately out which I knew he would be. So it's Sunday & since your taking all your kiddos, I'll just drive my Jeep. Anyone else want to go with us, I have two empty seats!

Okay let's bring the kiddos and then lets plan a longer hike (like Wedington) in the fall. By then we should be more than ready and it won't be so hot either.

Sure. wanna do the hike at Devil's Den? It was what? 8.5 miles? is that right? I'll have to look it up. That shouldn't take us very long at all to knock out if it's just adults, but kids wouldn't slow us down that much either. Let me know if you're bringing kids & I will too, but I don't think Ike would enjoy himself very much but Van would. Up to you!

Okay Paula...Frank said that we aren't ready for a 14.5 mile hike but he would love for us to do a 6-8 mile hike. So, can we change were we are going? I want that extra workout. And the new adventure would be great!

Let me know...

bummer you can't join us, Jana. But I know you'll have a good time at Lost Bridge!

Ron took that pic of me Mother's Day weekend to put on Classmates.com, I was trying to look as young as humanly possible for a 39 yo so my classmates from high school would be jealous! lol

Jana there is a 5 mile loop out at Lost Bridge that you should hike. I havn't done it but Carrie did it with Frank and the kids Monday and she said it was a good workout.

I have to remember to stop and think.

I'd like to meet up somewhere in Fayetteville and leave cars behind so we don't use so much gas - maybe at the Harps on Wedington @ 7:00. It's a long hike & I'm estimating about 5 hours without kids.

Anyone up for it?
