6+ Miles in the Mud!!!

I just realized that I have hiked a full 10 miles in the mud this weekend!  Wow!  That's awesome!

Just me

After church I grabbed a quick lunch and packed a snack and some water.  I met up with my gal pals at North Park where we pounded out a full 6+ miles on the muddy trail.  It was REALLY sloppy!  There was one fall (not me).  We caught two dogs on the fly.  Snagged a geocache called "Ice Rink and a Bathtub."  We spotted some other hikers right in the vicinity of the cache and thought surely they were looking for the same.  I asked the man "How much further?"  He said "I don't know, where are you trying to go?"  My reply "Ice Rink and a Bathtub."  "What?" he says.  Ummm... it was then fairly apparent that he had NO IDEA what we were doing.  LOL  A few feet beyond that conversation we found the container.  I logged the find from my iphone.  Very cool!

Those of you on my facebook, had you been on FB this afternoon you may have been able to track our progress via Runkeeper.  I'm loving this tool that maps our hikes.  It's impressive technology.

Girl Power!!!!
