So...I did it.

<snip>

My next step is to turn it into a book, but we'll see how that goes... At least I'll put a lot of writing on the web :)
So damn cool, Jess! Major kudos for knocking this one down. :D

The book idea is outstanding, and I look forward to more recollections.

Well done, Now I'm inspired to give it a go! Since I hike most Sundays I should be able to cover most days in 7 years but I'm sure it wont be that easy. Once I've compiled what I've got into a photo gallery I'll report back with what I'm missing :D

I'm guessing Karl on the other had could already have it done several times over :lol:

I'm damn curious, but I'm sure I'm nowhere near.

Haven't been (back) at it anywhere near as long as either you or Jess.

Yes! It's kind of crazy how randomly over the years you can accumulate 10 hikes on one particular date in May but none on another. It's been a fun challenge to try and fill in the gaps. And I had to set my project back two years because of missed days: once you miss a day, you've got to wait another year to try and complete it.

Overall though it was a lot of fun and I learned quite a bit about myself and what drives me to hike. Plus I loved geeking out over the spreadsheet I made and figuring out new places to go throughout the year, and in every kind of weather.
Will break trail for beer.

The thread got me curious, so I crunched the numbers. I'm a long ways off from that goal, only having hiked on 199 days out of the year. So I have 167 to go!

It really is interesting how some days there are lots of hikes and others none. And which months get the most coverage, and which get the least.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: WOW-What a ride!

I think you should hike every day for one year :)

Okay, y'all made me look. I have 252 days covered in the last six years. Some ways still to go! Looks like Dec 31 will have the most until tomorrow, May 18, gains another notch for the tie. :)

I guess I can do that when I'm retired... :D

My first thought was do I have a February 29 and I do from 2004!
