October 1, 2016 Update Last Saturday I was able to climb to the summit of Mt Elbert, the highest peak in Colorado at 14,439 feet. I have been working up to this challenge for about a year, but had failed in my two previous attempts. The ascent and descent took almost eight hours. I’m pretty slow. I still find it hard to believe that at 62 years old, my Birmingham Hips were able to get me to the summit. It was a remarkable surprise. I think this means that my long recovery is finally complete.
It is very inspiring reading about all the cool things we Hippys are doing. Not surprising, considering what we were doing before our hips wore out.
Thanks to Pat for hosting this site and for the Hippy community for all the good vibes through the years.
