My goal was for us to at least go to the 1/4 mark and then if we could do the whole thing, to do it in 2 hours. Kai was amazing. Almost 7 year olds must have the perfect body for hiking?! Koen had a good attitude (phew, you never know with that guy) and just kept going and going. I carried Nya on my back for the first 3/4 and couldn't do it anymore. I was exhausted and sooooo sweaty. Nya was happy. So, Gary took her and we continued on.
We did it! 1 hour and 45 minutes. Awesome. So proud of the boys. Even though Gary and I know them best, we were both surprised. You just never know unless you try....I seriously finished last of our group (although I do think carrying Nya was just a bit more tiring!!). I thought that I would be able to keep up with my kids until they were teenagers or something. Great. We better hike the West Coast Trail sooner than later:)
Here is a quick video that Gary put together of our hike. Some photos are from my iPhone and the rest is the GoPro. You'll see a bit of `Kai Cam' going on. Had I known he was putting together a video I may have thought for a second about what I was wearing but oh well. And as for `Drago', Gary says that most people would get it. I did not. I learned something today.
