Hope everyone is enjoying the winter weather!  My foot is finally feeling more or less back to normal.  We'll return to the trails next week, after Alex and Sage finish their midterm exams (we homeschool, but each girl takes accredited classes through various online and in-person institutions).  We'll probably hike twice during the Christmas holidays, then the girls will concentrate on skiing for a month or so.  In mid-February, assuming I remain uninjured, we'll get back to hiking once a week.

In the meantime, I'm almost finished documenting our John Muir Trail adventure (click here).

Many have asked if we're thru-hiking anything next year.  As of now, we plan to hike all the trails on our Terrifying 25 list, then head to Idaho to take on highpoint #45, Borah Peak.  We also have travel plans for the summer which are not hiking related.  We therefore probably won't be able to thru-hike a long-distance trail during 2015...there won't be enough time to fit everything in...though we will continue our fundraising-for-charities tradition using the Terrifying 25.  Stay tuned for more details.

I'll be back with a trip report next week.  Stay warm, folks!
