Our upcoming "mini-trip" - the countdown is on! Mike and his Papa leave next Tuesday! They'll be hiking / camping for four days until the rest of us [the girls] can get off school / work to join! I am super pumped! Since we'll be camping for the weekend at the Amicalola Falls State Park, I'm going to get a chance to [attempt] a 16 mile hike in a day. I haven't decided if I'm going to stuff my pack full to try to simulate what it will really be like or if I'm just going to go at it - to get a feel for 16 miles [the latter will probably win because I'm sure I'll be toting my camera & documenting!] I'll keep you posted!
As a side note, I've been able to start working out at the new GHS Family YMCA [the old Livninside out] - it's been wonderful! To have a full gym of equipment again! And classes! And the movie room! Ahhhh...I am in heaven (:
