I'm heading out today, Friday, for the Colorado Trail.
In 2006, we quit our jobs and left our home to hike the 450 miles of the Colorado Trail. We made it 150 miles to Leadville before the snow (in August) pushed us off the trail.
We'd promised ourselves we would continue on the trail one segment at a time. But we've never returned. In fact, I haven't looked at my packing gear since we returned.
We are returning to the trail tonight.
Our hope is to do the next segment, get a feel for backpacking again, and see how we like it.
I'll let you know how it goes.
