I would like to take a moment to thank every one of you Trekkers for an amazing first 9 months! We have not only hiked with our little ones, but created some deep bonds, supported one another through transitions, modeled healthy living and have begun to lay the groundwork for a lifetime of outdoor adventures for our children! This time of year can be full of excitement, especially for our little ones just figuring out the wonder of the Holidays, but it can also be stressful, for parents, especially when their homes may be thousands of miles away or budgets are tight. Take a few moments for yourself, whether it is a few extra minutes in the shower or letting your partner read the bedtime story instead. Making magical memories can be hard work! That's why Santa is just that, a Saint!
The frigid temps, sniffles, testy furnaces and winds have fizzled out the fun the last couple of weeks for some of us. I know I've lost a lot of steam. Next weeks temps are looking up! Let's make a valiant effort go get a head start on those resolutions and get one more hike in before the New Year.
Remember if you drink don't drive, and if you drive don't drink.
