On my first day of retirement (March 1, 2016) , it was a great day outside. I took a few hours to do the first of many of my experiences. I went to Sugarloaf Mountain and hiked the base of the mountain. The total mileage is over 7 miles. Not too hilly, but long. It took over 2 hours.
As with several of my experiences, this is not new. However, it is an experience I want to do in retirement. There will be several entries for hiking as I want to have many of these experiences.
This experience is a bit different since I have retired. Contrary to hiking on the weekend where we had trouble parking and passed a hundred hikers, today I saw 3. Got to love being out in nature without the crowd.
