Not much. I have not hiked in a year due to knee issues. After a year of PT and Synvisc injections the doctor has decide to do arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus and shave down the bone spurs and further debridement.

Surgery is on Friday. If all goes the way I WANT it to I'll be back out hiking on the GET come May 2009. :)

Ya, I spread myself around....

So, you read that my daughter is moving to TX. A whole new world of trail. What is a good time of year to hike there?

Yeah ..and contrary to intuition there are some serious ups/down in Big Bend. We carried some monstrously heavy packs back when we hiked there but there was some serious geography to conquer.

That's where BAT was living when we met (Texas) and shortly before she relocated to Georgia for grad school we decided to do Big Bend.

Oh, by the way ...Texas is REALLY hot in the summer !!

My daughter is going to have to deal with a big climate change after 3 years in Seattle and the island of Rota.

You'll want to take several days to take a float. Great scenery and an easy float.
