Gamboling with Monique is a site where I will record my adventures outside. I will be adding current gambolings as well as ones from the past. I am doing this for myself so that when I am old and grey (ha, already there) and can no longer do what I enjoy the most, I can look back and relive these moments.
I usually carry my Garmin 60csx and record my tracks. If I forget it then I will probably not remember to post the hike here (: I am going to link to my gpx files which can be downloaded into mapsource and I suppose Basecamp but I don’t now that for sure. I am doing this so that my friends and access my tracks easily without having to email me (; Anyone that uses them does so at their own risk. Know your limits folks.
I hike with my dog-in-law Miranda. She is not mine but she loves me most. We have been hiking several times a week for about 9 years and we have logged 1000s of miles together. She is slowing down so sometimes (shhh, don’t tell her) I don’t take her with me.
Although it may seem that all I do is hike, I do occasionally mountain bike, kayak and gasp…run. Miranda doesn’t join me for any of this nonsense.
I am planning on section hiking the Washington State segment of the Pacific Crest Trail next summer (2015). It is time.
