Hi Bob,

Good luck to you and your daughter, Joy, on your your hiking trip this
spring.  I just read a post from Alan asking for details on your trip. 
We would all benefit from your experiences on the trail.  I only get 3
weeks of vacation a year and most of that is pre-planned with the family
for the beach and sometimes we work in a week in NH (Mt. Washington). 
Anything you'd like to share would be interesting reading.

I find it fascinating that your 14 year old is taking on such a
challenge...I just need to know how did she get interested in hiking? 
We have an 18 and a 14 year old (both girls) and neither has shown any
interest.  We even got them their own gear but still no good.  They did
venture up Tuckerman's Ravine in NH a year ago with us and didn't have a
problem.  They would be great hikers but it's just not their cup of tea

Good luck to you both and keep us posted!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you!
