hiya again, the swimming kind of fell off a bit what with ppl being really busy lately, but i think we'll get it going again this week maybe.
mind you the hiking is still happening lots, 7 hours between sat and sun just gone by, whew!!!!! i can tell you for sure when i get heated up doing that stuff it's no joke, yikes. i had to pack in 1.5 hrs on sat and out the same on sun, both times with packs on both back and front, and in between we had a three hour hike plus swimming and rock climbing. lots of breaks to let the functionality come back up to safety level, then kept hikin. could hardly walk when we got back to the car yesterday though, sheesh!
i don't know about you but we had a nice drop in the temp up here over the last few days. if it's still too hot where you are, hopefully you can experiment successfully without the back acting up too much!
