another aspiring 46er?

Out of the blue, on the way to baseball practice, my almost 13 year old son announces that he would like to go backpacking with me next weekend. Huh? I knew he enjoyed our hike of black mountain, but I thought that was because he was allowed to skip school to do it. So, I quickly check that he is serious...stop off on the way home from practice to buy him a sleeping bag and jump on the computer to order extra backpacking meals. While on the Campmor site, I can't resist biting the bullet and purchasing a bear resistant canister. We've already arranged to borrow two and now will have one of our own for future trips. This trip will either make him or break him as a backpacking hiker. I am hoping he comes down with the fever. How cool would that be...

Hey Corin! Yeah, I see that our blogs do look kind of similar! LOL Best of luck with your 46, and I'll be sure and keep track of how you do! If you have any questions or anything, do ask!

Enjoy the view!
