This year, in the midst of all the celebrating, we had a lovely surprise. We logged in to our Feeding America fundraising page and discovered we've already reached 50% of our goal. To those who have donated -- thank you! If you haven't already donated, please consider doing so in the next few days. Your contributions are tax-deductible, so if you donate before January 1, you'll give yourself a slight break on your 2013 returns. Every cent goes directly to Feeding America.
Our training continues in the form of our usual weekly mountain hiking. You can follow our New Hampshire all-season peak adventures on our main blog, www.trishalexsage.com. The girls hike once a week and I usually hike twice a week. Once we have our JMT permits secured, I'll begin posting more JMT-specific info (gear, resupply plans, etc.) on this JMT-specific webpage. Also, once spring arrives, the girls will increase their NH mountain hiking to two or three days a week, and I'll increase mine to three or four days a week.

Here's hoping for a fun 2013-2014 winter hiking season!
Happy New Year, folks. I'll post again next week. In the meantime, please consider donating to Feeding America, and come join us on our main blog, www.trishalexsage.com.
