I was supposed to start the hike today but the flip house has delayed this. New start date is Monday May 3rd. I’m going to have to push just a little harder so I can still finish before it starts to get colder on Mt. Katahdin but I’m still going to do it.
The house is taking me a little longer but still coming along nicely. Part of the delays are due to my underestimating how much time some things would take and part of it is because of people not showing up when they say they will. Either way, it will get done, it will look great and I will be hiking soon!
This past Saturday evening I was able to take my father to see some flat track motorcycle racing right here in Ashland Virginia. While there we even ran into the guy that used to sponsor me when I raced, we hadn’t seen him in about 35 years. The turn out for the race exceeded everyone’s expectations so hopefully it will become a regular thing there now.
The previous week, Michele went with me to the REI store to help with a couple of items that I wasn’t able to find used or on a clearance rack anywhere. REI definitely has everything you need for hiking but it’s hard to pay those prices when you’re as cheap as I am. LOL
I will be hosting one more WAM! Open House before I hit the trail. If you or anyone you know is interesting in learning more about WAM! follow up with me and put Thursday, April 29th at 9:00am on your calendar.
I have to get back to working on the house now, hope you have a great week!
