Two Victories

This week in the Moore house hold came complete with many victories probably, but two stand out and are worth mentioning.

First, I finished our Christmas shopping.  Done and done.  Some gifts will be delivered in person when we see various family at Thanksgiving.  Others will need to be shipped to two locations and I will do that sometime in December when it is closer to the actual holiday.  Others will be given in person at Christmas itself.  But that's the easy part.  Being able to check off the To Do List that the gift selections and purchasing have been completed, is an enormous relief every year and being able to get it done in early November only adds to that enormity.

Secondly, after a drought in working toward my trail completion goal, I made some real progress yesterday.  I had completed 18.8 miles of my 29.5 mile target and had 10.7 miles to go, which involved 7 trails.  This weekend, we hiked the longest of these 7 trails and knocked off 4.9 miles, bringing the number of miles completed to 23.7 and the miles needed to only 5.8 and 6 trails.  Given that the average length of these trails is only 1.18 miles, it felt great to cross off 4.9 of the remaining needed miles in one trip.

Here's hoping that your Veterans Day Weekend was productive.  A special thanks to all the Veteran readers for the sacrifices they have made.  Only they and their families truly know the reality of those sacrifices and, whatever they are for each individual, I am thankful for them.

Keep It Real!

P.S. Los Alamos Trails Goal Update: 23.7 of 29.5 miles completed...getting there!
