I just got done hiking roughly 550 miles with a 30# backpack. Ate everything I could find. Lost 9 pounds.

Well no. Up hill over the Pyrenees in the rain and hail. Rain ended on the 3rd day and then mostly hot and dry for the next 35 days. Got rain again while hiking the last few days. Lots of hills, but I admit that we walked both up and down, not just up

Hiked the Camino de Santiago/Way of St James trail from southwest France to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Then continued west from Santiago to Finisterra on the east edge of the Atlantic Ocean, then hiked a bit along the coast.

Some random photos from the hike, more in the OUTDOOR LIFESTYLE forum here at the ForumForums. Trip was from June 8 to July 28. So just under 2 months, included a short stop in London for a few days. But hiked the rest of the time.

If you look around the Forums, somewhere you'll find photos from last year when we hiked Hadrian's Wall East-to-West across England last year.

Considering a North to South hike of Italy for next year. Actually just part of Italy. Not sure but either Florence to Assisi to Rome or maybe just Assisi to Rome with a couple weeks of "normal" sight seeing. I've not been to Italy in a few decades and my wife has never been, so a 30-40 day hiking trip is probably not the best way to spend our time. So maybe 30 days total, with 15 days hiking & 15 days sightseeing via bus/train?

Only a short mountain day hike this week so far. Hiked down this mountain to the creek, fly fished the creek for an hour, caught a few browns and a single rainbow trout, ate our lunch and then walked back up the mountainside in the heat of the afternoon sun.

Today we are going to walk our winter time snowmobile trail that goes up to Powder River Pass to see how much down timber is in the trail and determine how much time and effort will be needed to open the trail this winter to snowmobiles. The trail is not open to ATV's only snowmobiles. A hike is necessary to plan for the work needed to get it ready for winter.
