I would like to say thanks to everyone that visited my site and to those that have left comments. As well, I would like to thank all of the other bloggers out there that have included my links on their own blogs. It is very cool, the little world of its own between bloggers.
I have enjoyed spending time on my blog, and it kind of gets me motivated at times. It is tough for me to get out as much as I like, but I still try to get out there as much as possible, yes, even if it is in my own back yard. (I am actually thankful for my back yard, my last place didn’t really have one!)
I am excited that my blog did as well as it did last year, and I hope that I can improve it this year. I will strive to continue with gear reviews as well as trip reports. And also, to improve my writing skills. 🙂
So, thanks again to everyone for a great year, and looking forward to seeing you in the new year (even on the trail)!
Happy New Year!
