We Made It!
I knew we would have to hike into our camp site on Saturday, and Hubby had mentioned that it would be a six mile trek, but no one mentioned that we were hiking around a small mountain. I had in my mind that this would be a relatively flat journey with perhaps a hill or two. But, I was so wrong. There were some seriously steep inclines and declines that we had to traverse. And I grunted and groaned most of the way with shaky legs and hips that were screaming at me.
It was honestly a great time, though. Once I was parked safely on my duff resting. This was my first time to camp with the Scout troop, and I was so impressed with their independent spirits and how the young men banded together.
I'm so proud of him!
And, I'm super proud of Hubby for putting up with my complaining, Grandma-Hiker state of mind. He coached me when I got to the points where I said I didn't think I could go any further. He rested with me when I needed it. And he handed me the shovel when I needed to find a potty. Can it get any better than that?
