Backpacking Trip

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’….
