Now that I’m officially home from my attempted CDT hike I felt I needed to update my journal. I know some of you have been following and may be interested in findng out what happened to monkey.
I’m back in the Chicago-land area and currently enjoying my summer. I’ve decided to start working on the yard and house. I haven’t given up my dream of hiking the CDT and will some day return to hike this trail. I never thought I’d be the one to say “Some day” but here I am saying it. I’m not ashamed of it. I just have better things to do with my time and enjoying being home with my girlfriend.
What is next? that is a good question. Together we are thinking of tackling the River to River Trail, maybe this year in the fall. I’ll be doing some more research and watching the weather closely as our first attempt last year yielded floods in southern Illinois. So I have the guide books, we just need to place it on the calendar somewhere.
Thanks for following me and stay turned for my next adventure.
