Leaving Cooperstown…

It’s been almost two weeks since “semi-retirement” . I’m putting the last finishing touches on my backpack. Thanks Karla, for the helpful advice. Also spending lots of time doing some short day hikes in  local Cooperstown trails. I’ve had several  send-off celebrations from family and friends as well as my coworkers at the hospital. It’s been great encouragement for me. Below are some pictures of some of these recent events. Also, some nice local hikes in the woods where I’m getting used to my pack and making sure at least some of my muscles are getting used to that upcoming hiking demands. Tomorrow I’m heading off with Stephanie to Harpers Ferry West Virginia via State College Pennsylvania for my planed send off on May 1st. Try my best to keep you all posted on upcoming hiking adventures.
