Hiking in the Hood

The 4-day trip we did in January actually was not only a good "breaking in" trip for our gear, but also for our bodies. No matter how much a person runs, spins, swims, or works out, there is just no substitute for hauling 30 pounds on your back, up and down hills. So, to prepare ourselves, we are hiking every other day, with our full gear, around the neighborhood, then to the bottom of Fianna Hills, and back to the top again. Linda got her bigger boots, and is breaking those in as well!  Here's Keith on the Fianna golf course on our hike this morning.  I can't help but think how much that background will change in the next few weeks.
