Hiking for health and style!

Bruce and I got up yesterday and decided to go for a hike. We have all the goodies, packs,cooking gear, safety stuff, water bladders, tent, sleeping bags and more, so we were ready for almost any terrain. There is a wetland area near home so we thought that sounded like a plan. We repacked our gear because we didn’t need everything. It was just going to be a day hike with some fishing time thrown in.

We decided on a route, got Ellen ready to go and set off. We decided to ad our fold up lightweight chairs to Bruce’s pack so we’d be more comfortable fishing. We hiked for about 5 and 1/2 miles when we spotted a nice area to stop and have lunch. I had brought some noodles and crackers. Coffee too. We stopped, pulled out the chairs, set up the Sterno stove, had coffee while the noodles cooked and took some pictures. As we were sitting there I looked around and busted out laughing. As I explained to Bruce what I thought we looked like, sitting out in the boonies in our chairs, off he went laughing also. About half an hour later some ladies that worked for Fish and Game came along and we chatted for quite a while about land use in the area. They took our pictures to use in a brochure. Maybe we’ll be famous! lol 

It was getting on past noon so we decided to pack up and head for the fishing hole. We sat and fished for about 2 hours then headed home. My hip started hurting really bad so Bruce walked on ahead to get the car. Turned out I had raised my  pack up about 5 miles back and it just wasn’t sitting on me right. When I fixed it the pain lessened. It was still nice to get a ride for the last mile. All total we hiked 8 miles and had a wonderful day.
