As 2013 draws to a close, I wanted to do a reflection post on how much the Lord has blessed me on the trail this year. I hiked 45 new trails, eclipsing my previous record of 44 set just last year. Those 45 hikes came from 11 different states, including 1 new state (New York). I also upgraded more than 50 of my old hikes by adding new pics. Overall, it has been a fantastic year.
Looking forward to 2014, I plan to take a couple of months off of the trail to alleviate some problems I am having with my feet. Later this year, I hope to get back to the Western USA again; I haven't been west of Minnesota since 2011. I also plan to focus on expanding my reach here in the Carolinas and upgrading more of my old entries.
See you on the trail in 2014!
