Off with the dogs in my new boots. I took my first hike with them yesterday. A long hike. They aren't broken in and I find that the pinch my ankle a bit.
Sorry about the monster photo of me at the top of the page. As you can see, I haven't fully figured out how to size photos correctly. We'll keep working on it.
And Joni went to the bank the other day. The Teller Lady saw her name on our check and asked if she was married to me. When Joni said yes, the Teller Lady then went on to state how much she enjoyed the CNR piece from last summer. She said she wasn't much of an outdoors person, but from reading the piece, she felt she just had to do something like that this summer. She was going to try and hike that stretch of the PCT.
