Candee’s Blog of Miles

I recently received a Christmas card from my sister-in-law, complete with a super long family letter which was fun to read.  In it, she told me that she liked reading about my hiking exploits–is that what they are?  Interesting!  She was also curious to know how many miles I had walked in 2014.  That simple question gave me quite a pause, because I didn’t have the ability to answer her.  Sure, I could take a wild guess, even a calculated one, but in the end, it would still be an estimation.  Her question prompted my decision to keep track of this year’s walks. I typically hike with Tom, so I will annotate the walks with a C or T depending on who walked on each particular day.  This should be interesting…

    I’m a mailman. Do my work miles count?

    Ummm….no! Mailman miles do not count in the final total!

    So far, Gambrill is the best hike. We couldn’t see much, but it definitely had a creepy atmosphere!

    Love your blog, especially the pictures! I’m not able to hike, so I am living through you guys. I had a friend whose only dream was to hike the AT. As he got sicker with diabetes, he gave me some of his books on the trail (we shared the same dream!) Keep having fun and be safe! And keep writing, please! :)

      Thanks for the great comment! I apologize for not checking on comments for a few days. Candee just got back from hiking 334 miles in the Netherlands. I would like to take a shot at the AT someday, but that’s 7 years away, and I will be pushing 60 by then. That sounds like a bad excuse–and it is! I, too, have read several of the thru-hiker memoirs. It sounds like everybody who finished the hike had the most miserable/best time of his or her life. We’re going to hit Shenandoah National Park for a short loop tomorrow. After that, we have a tougher one planned. Thanks for reading about our hikes, etc.
