September 2022: A Note From Diane
NEWEST HIKING FOR HER ARTICLESMany times I pull together an article based on a question that lands in my inbox.
That's what happened with this one. A woman asked what to eat on a long backpacking trip that would provide enough calories to give her energy all day long.
Here's my answer:
I'll bet you are, too, and that's why I take the time to write thorough, detailed reviews.
This month, my review of REI Co-op's Beyonder pack highlights a backpack that can transition from your daily commute into carryon for your next trip, and also do a little dayhiking.
Give it a look here:
INSPIRING WOMAN OF THE MONTHMeet Joan Young, who at 74 years of age is going to do a second thru-hike because the first one just wasn't enough! Her goal: Minnesota sections of the North Country Scenic National Trail.
LEAVE WILDERNESS WILDSomeone spray painted blue blazes on a wilderness trail. Very bad form, in my opinion.
What do you think?
This article sorts out why that type of vandalism is a problem on the iconic and very wild Superior Trail.
NEW MAGAZINE ALERTDid you hear? There's a new magazine for hikers and other outdoorsy types trying to get off the ground.
In other words, for those of us who love to sleep on the ground.
Maybe you’d like to help this good idea. You can read the kickstarter details here.
VISUALLY IMPAIRED HIKINGThis article explores what is possible for those who hike with various visual impairments, from the perspective of 30 active hikers.
Visually impaired while hiking
A GOOD READRecently someone in our Over Forty Hiker community recommended that I read The Wild Silence. It's written by the author of The Salt Path, Raynor Winn.
Both books make great reading for life lessons in determination and grit.
Recently, Raynor and her husband Moth shared details about their desire to spend time trekking together, in spite of his diagnosis with corticobasal degeneration.
So glad we're here togetherThank you very much for making time to read all the way to the end of this little newsletter.
I feel connected to you through our love of hiking, although we may never meet. A virtual hiker bond, if you will.
Please know that you are always welcome to send me thoughts, photos, trail humor, suggestions for articles, anything that proves to me that you're just as real as I am.
Maybe even real-er!! (make of that what you will)
Diane a.k.a. Happy Hiker
