Hike 9 was done May 27th. We’ve been a bit remiss on documentation. Hike 9 was on a segment of the Ice Age Trail. I was so excited to get on the Ice Age Trail again. Graham, however, was not. This hike was literally one painful mile.
No amount of snacks or other bribery worked. He just did not want to hike that day. He wanted to be carried. I got him to walk briefly by looking into downed trees to see if we could find bugs.
I ended up tandem carrying both boys back to the car. It was hot and humid and walking with 55 extra pounds did not seem like a bright idea. I’ve slowly built up a tolerance for all that extra weight. However, its not something I really enjoy.
We accomplished one sweaty gross mile. We found a tick on Graham at bath time that we had to pull off him. It’s officially tick season in Wisconsin. I plan to Pemethrin our clothes soon.
Total Miles: 19
“What a cool place to hike
I see tons of stuff I like
Wish I had a bigger jar
I’d take these scorpions in the car” -David L. Harrison
