    One thing I did forget to mention: If any of y'all get a chance to hike/hang with VegaMike, take him up on it. VegaMike is a fun guy, a good hiking partner and a pretty good all around guy. Mike, I'd be more than happy to hike with you again, my friend. Happy Trails, buddy.

    Thanks for the kind words, y'all. It was a great trip and we had a great time. Next long trip: The Smokies in the spring!

    Thanks for the hiking pole advise! I tried it and it worked very well, no blisters!

    HappyCamper, I did enjoy my hike into Harper's Ferry. Almost got trampled by runners a couple of times!! Feet tried to boycott when I got to the tow path! I explained to them that they had made it 37 miles and I fully expected just three more! I can't wait to do it over again as a day hike with Hooch.

    Bug-Bait, I've learned that hiking is more mental than physical. I just think about how lucky I am to be doing what I love, even if I'm slow and sometimes it is hard.

    Thanks everyone for the encouragement and kind words. I have decided one thing, that Miley Cyrus is full of crap.....the climb sucks!

    That song (The Climb) was written by a guy who lives in a town just north of where I live, here in NC. Just trivial trivia. She didn't write it.

    Look at me, defending Miley Cyrus, imagine that...
