[at-l] I agree, Rose!

My husband and I often hike together
which we both really enjoy.  But there
are also days that we hike solo (which
is almost always when he sees the
exciting things like wildlife!  He says
that is because I talk too much LOL but
he really talks more than I do! I still
hardly ever see wildlife when I am
alone!)  Although we haven't yet done
our thru (my health problems need a
little work before that, but soon!!)  we
have great days singing, playing word
associations etc. and other times of
just walking meditations solo.  We
always meet at night (for dinner, hot
chocolate etc. etc.) and share our
stories of the day.  Just like when we
are home.  My husband told me recently
(and other times before) that he really
enjoyed my company and I do his, well
MOST of the time.  But I also value my
own space.  I have been talking about a
solo thru hike, maybe in a year or two,
as it is easier for me to get away.  I
really need to be at least 2 or 3 years
past the brain surgery and no chance of
seizures first.  No trouble for quite a
while but having a would not be the
safest thing out in the woods!  I have
to make sure the ITBS is stable.  I need
to work on that balance too.  No fun
falling off mountains but, if a blind
man can do it, so can I! (Thank you
Leki's! What would I ever do without
you?)  BTW Rose....how is that book
coming along?  Anyone going to be up
around Springer New Years Day?  Linda
