Sorry for the long space between posts but Janelle and I have been very busy with events, school and, you know, life in general. The book is doing well, so right off the bat, thank you all for the support, enthusiasm and kindness.
If you’ve read the book, I would love and appreciate your support via a review on Amazon.
On Monday, Janelle and I were honored by the Over the Hill Hikers, the creators of the 52’er list, at an event where we presented our story to a packed house of very enthusiastic and kind hard-core hikers. And they gave us our 52’er patches, Janelle’s first! I’ll post a picture of that later in the week.
They fed us, and encouraged us and made Janelle feel very welcome. This is a very fine group of people and an emotional “home-coming” of sorts for us. After all, without this list, none of this would be happening. They have a website (Over the Hill Hikers) but if really want a history and stories about this group, there is a fun book written about them by Shirley Elder Lyons. Check it out here: Over the Hill Hikers book.
Then, Tuesday was primary election day in Manchester and you know what that meant? That meant Buffalo and Tough Cookie were on the trails. We headed up to Lookout Ledge in the Randolph hills to catch some mountain air and get some amazing views of King Ravine and the Northern Presidentials. This is a great family friendly hike, though we took the steep route. But even that only came to about 3 miles round trip. Up at the ledge, we ate lunch and bathed in the sun like two lizards. Soon, fall will be here, so we were thrilled to take advantage of one of the last days of summer warmth.
I’ve posted a couple pics from the hike below. Today, I’m off to Vermont for an event in Morristown. Tomorrow I’ll give a talk to the Manchester Rotary. Then, we’ll have a week off before the craziness starts again. Check our event schedule above, we’d love to see you! Until then, keep on hiking and peace!
