Just got my permit approval for a 4-5 day backpacking trip in August to Rae Lakes Loop in Kings Canyon National Park (near Yosemite). Very excited. This trip would not have been possible if I were still a smoker.

Have fun!

Just curious tho .... why do you need a permit to go hiking there? Isn't it public land if it's a National Park?

By regulating the number of permits that are issued they are able to prevent the the park from becoming over crowded 🧗‍♂️

Is the permit so they can keep watch on you if you don't return on time?  Be safe - no daredevil moves or selfies on the edges.  It is beautiful there.  I have seen a lot of the mountains in the US and Canada.  My dream trip is to take my husband to Banff, Alberta .  From what I remember, as a child, there weren't any guardrails on the edges of the roads.  My mother white knuckled it the whole trip.  We would have to come up with ways to keep me distracted on the drive.

Okay Reci, you just had to show me that gif  😮.  I remember it being so beautiful, with the mountains surrounding the little town.  I don't think there will be a way around the mountains.

Just going to have to bite the bullet.  This is on my bucket list!

You and hubby can always get yourselves wingsuits and base jump into town from on top of one of the mountain peaks?

Avoids driving through the mountains on those dangerous roads with no guardrails :) .

First mountain hike since I had surgery in March. Hidden Lake. So peaceful.

Hope you had better weather than we did.  Hiked some of the Three Gorges section of the Cumberland Trail today.  The rain was coming down sideways for a while.

 

Wasn't a total loss.  Found a nice rock outcropping to take shelter under and the lightning strikes over North Chickamauga Creek looked pretty awesome.

Had a good run this morning.  Got out early and ran while the sun was still coming up.  Did an out-and-back from the Roaring Creek trailhead up to Gilbreath Creek for a total of 9.8 miles.

 

It was nice.  I had thousands of acres all to myself.  Apparently, so-called normal people don't go out on trails at 5:30 a.m. on a Thursday morning.

Just got back from a 10 mile hike in the mountains. I’m so grateful that quitting smoking has opened up this amazing new world for me.

Your hikes are always so beautiful. My brother lives in Redondo Beach and when we visit he just wants us to go sight seeing.  You need to put a place and name on your hikes so  we can 

try some of them.  Then again, we are to old farts, we might not have the endurance you do.

Got back to work this morning.  I took a few days off.  My left elbow was all flared up and after several days of running, my body needed rest more than it needed another workout.

 

Got back to the basics today: Strength work (Front Squats, Overhead Press, Bench Press, Chin-Ups, and Farmer's Walks), 20 minutes of steady-state work on the rower, and finished up with a mobility session.

 

I'm a bit slow on the uptake sometimes, but I'm finally figuring out that rest and recovery are vital parts of any physical regimen.

That balance between physical exertion and rest/recovery changes with age too. Keep that in mind as you age.

Okay, we are camping and my husband decided we were going to hike from the campground into the town.  He didn't tell me it would be through a cemetery  (I met all the dead people of Lebanon, Ohio) and down a hill (which would be up on the way home).  He said it was only 1 and  1/2 miles.  Turned out to be 4.37 miles and 9,397 steps.  What were we thinking.  We both are too out of shape for this kind of hike.  Someone actually stopped and asked us if we needed help in the cemetery.  We were to embarrassed to say yes "give us a ride back to the campground".

We did however have some good laughs at ourselves.  We did make it back to the campground.  I will let you know if we can move tomorrow!!!!!

Did an eight mile hike in the foothills of Mt San Jacinto today. Came within 12 feet of these Bighorn sheep along the trail. Beats a treadmill any day.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
