|Me, AT Dreamin'|
|Carla R & Judy: Solo Hikers|
So, she has kindly asked me to help out with gear knowledge and old fart women hiker stuff. Little does she know that I am going to be a sponge. I'm going to soak up everything that I can because...I STILL want to hike by myself. What youngsters who are staring the world in the face don't realize is that as you acquire knowledge, understanding and grace while aging, you also discover that the world is scary! Things happen! What if I fall and I can't get up. I need some courage. So, I'm going to listen, take notes and take no prisoners. Someday soon, maybe next year who knows...it'll be my time.

ADDENDUM: Carla points out in the comments below and I concur that this course is for ANY woman who desires to hike. Although, the course is designed to help you plan an AT hike, things you learn I THINK will be transferable to other trails. However you want to hike, whether it be solo, with a partner or a group, Carla's class will be an invaluable resource as you prepare.
