Let's say I will never see my first half century again. I hiked extensively in the high peaks in the late 60's and early 70's until Uncle Sam took me to new and exciting places. Have done whitewater kayaking but am more sensible now. My wife and I live in Bolton Landing and have 5 daughters between us and will be empty nesters this fall. College is sure more expensive than when I went!!. I just did Giant for the first time this past weekend (8/14/04) and am paying for it now. I used Hadley mtn and Thomas mtn as warm ups but the trip down Giant quickly reminded me of my past 8 knee operations. Still made it in 6 hours along Roaring Brook and the views were spectacular. I will be doing a week on the trails in mid Oct and will hit a number of new peaks. The lure of the trails still calls and I can't help but enjoy the majesty of mother nature.
