My nest is about to be empty and I am ready to go exploring! I have 2 boys, ages (almost) 18 and 21. We have always loved road trips and traveling. Now that they are all grown up, I am ready for the next chapter in life. My oldest son and I will be attempting to thru hike the AT in 2016.
And then I invited my 21 year old son, Dude, to come along on the trail. I realized all of my mother's fears and then some. Balancing my mother's fears with my own motherly fears has sucked been interesting, to say the least.
