My Hiking Boots

Posted by in Hiking

Finding the right hiking boots has been a bit of a drama. Last year, I developed an issue with my foot that was diagnosed as a Morton’s neuroma in my right foot. It was very painful and I limped with every shoe I put on. After consulting with a doctor I switched out almost all my shoes. Bye-bye Birkenstocks. Bye-bye Merrell Moab Mid Waterproof Hiking Boot. I had to start over from scratch. And because of this I had a $130 pair of boots I couldn’t wear anymore. Thank God…read more

The Adventures of Coco and the Danger Noodle

Posted by in Hiking

Today, my friends and I decided to go on a hike. I was somewhat worried… because it would be Coco’s first hiking expedition. We met up around 4pm at Rockledge Park in Grapevine, Texas. It was a truly glorious day. The wind was high and the sky was bright blue. It was really¬†spectacular. The park borders Grapevine Lake and happens to be 10 min away from where I live. Once my friends got there we started out. The trail has been eroded due to the amount of flooding we have…read more

Hiking Closed Trails

Posted by in Hiking

I woke up around 8:30 am. It was nice having Sahara and Youssef there to pal around with. I took as shower while Youssef built up the fire for breakfast. I fried eggs in my cool little camping cup. We ate egg sandwiches for breakfast and it was absolutely lovely. Around 10:30 we packed up our gear and headed off to find a good hiking trail. Since there has been so much rain in the past few weeks, many of the trails are closed. We headed from our camp site…read more

What Shoes to Buy

Posted by in Hiking

For the last 8 years I have been wearing Columbia Hiking Shoes, which retails for roughly $90. Its a good shoe the only problem I found with it was that the collar on the back that rests along my heel was easily crushed. This happened from normal use which results in blisters. It was such a nuisance. I went hiking a few weeks ago and had to hike the last mile in my socks. Thank goodness it was muddy so that my feet had cushion. I decided that I wouldn’t…read more

Day Hike and Cookout

Posted by in Hiking

After these last two weeks of weekend adventuring a few friends said they wanted to join me for an excursion. I thought it best to do a park close by and so I picked Rockledge Park at Grapevine Lake. It was great cooking and being around all my friends. There isn’t much to say because I like keeping special moments like this in my heart. It was a magical day. This was also the first time I wore my new Merrel Moab Hiking Boots. They worked a treat. I will…read more

This morning my friends Sahara and Youssef are set to join me. I am super excited. They are bringing breakfast! For the last 5-6 months I have been vegetarian*. The reason I put an asterix next to the words is because I don’t buy meat, but if someone offers I will eat it. This is a long story and one I will save for another post… but just know that I had steak for the first time in months and it was GLORIOUS.¬† They brought steak, eggs, and potatoes. And…read more
