I joined HAZ only 3 months ago so I wasn't even a member when this thread started but as a frequent visitor to the site I did have some Hazolutions...
One: Get off the sofa and start hiking again.....check
Two: Join HAZ.....check
Three: Meet Rowdy.....check (he's a good boy) as a bonus, I got to meet Me (aka Larry)
Four: Complete all the trails in Spur Cross and CCRA and Black Mountain....check
Five: Complete all the trails between New River Mesa and the TNF Seven Springs Area...a work in progress. Good success so far but Trail 247 kicked my butt!
Six: Do all of the above with someone I care about....check
End goal is to revisit Cheyava Falls in the GC (a trek I did in my 20's). This probably isn't gonna happen since I have progressive Pulmonary Disease. I think I could handle the AEG with some more training but the lack of O's associated with the elevation at the rims will most likely be my Waterloo. I'm going to keep at it though because "when you reach for the stars you may not quite get one, but you won't come up with a handful of mud either." Worst case scenario is I get to show my wife at least part of the beautiful North Kaibab Trail! Thanks to all for the interesting trip logs as it really helps with my motivation to prove the doctors wrong and keep moving.... "ALS IK KAN".
