What a great community! I'm so excited.

I haven't been able to do much out-of-doors stuff lately due to health stuff, but I am hoping that will change. I did have a brief period of more activity this spring in which I was able to hike parts of the Potomac Heritage Trail, including a gorge. I have fibromyalgia, and I managed to climb a fucking gorge and live to tell the tale the next day. That was a pretty awesome feeling, especially when I thought I'd lost all the cool rock-scrambly hiking things forever.

I grew up with a lot of hiking and camping and canoeing. It's a cheap way to vacation with three kids. I love the stars at  night, and the crackle of firewood. I love the feeling of a canoe paddle as it slides through water. I love the rush and thrill of conquering some rapids just right.

I really miss it, and I want it back. *fingers crossed*
