we are fair weather hikers

October 18, 2014

Yes it’s true  – we are fair weather hikers.  The thought of hiking in cold rain with the cool fall wind blowing through the trees, could not compete with our desire to add almost 25 more kilometres to our progress.

I’ve spent the past couple of days pondering this truth, and maybe it’s just a justification or rationalization but I think this is okay. When we decided to set this goal to hike the entire Bruce Trail, we did it with the understanding that it was going to be a bit of challenge but also fun.  So I don’t think there is anything to be gained from turning this fun endeavor into 2 unpleasant days spent being cold and damp and miserable.

So yes we are fair weather hikers, but that also means we are happy hikers.  And really it’s that what it should be all about.
