Last April, I started a trek in honor of the Mormon handcart pioneers, with the goal of walking 1305 miles in six months. Health issues intervened in early June and forced me to halt the trek until things (most notably the gout in my right foot) got better.
Well, those problems have eased enough that I’ve started the trek again, having walked another 33 miles in the past 10 days or so. I’d still like to finish the trek by next April, but we’ll see.
Oh, and the beard is back, much to my wife’s delight. ..bruce..
