I haven’t been backpacking in eons….. (read over 15 years). I have now passed my 51st birthday. I wondered if I could do it. So…. I went this weekend with a couple of friends. I slogged over 45lbs of stuff. And… I made it. With little effort and/or pain. I don’t know when we’ll get the chance again. But I’m hopin’….
Of course… no pics of me since I was behind the camera. Also, it rained in the afternoon, from our first river crossing until after we had gone to bed, so I didn’t take any pics of cool campfires or even our campsite in the woods. The bear hang was time consuming, but definitely a learning opportunity.
